Sigh. I came home Sunday from a 3 day weekend up near Mammoth/Lee Vining, CA, for the opening of the Tioga Pass, and did something in LightRoom that not only killed all my folders, meaning all 4000 or so of my pics are now in one folder, taking a bit to open, but converted EVERY PIC I TOOK over the weekend to .jpeg, so I can never work on them in RAW format. VERY pissed off about that. The gate opened at 0800 hours, Sat morning. We were there at 0515, and there were people freakin' camped out there, so we decided to go shoot Ellery and Tioga Lakes, then get coffee/bfast at Nicely's in Lee Vining, then go back up. We got back about 0850 or so, and the ranger said we were the 57th car in. Lots of snow, and Tuolumne Meadows, though snow free, was a millions shades of drab brown, not worth shooting, and mosquito hell. When we left, at roughly 1100 hours, there were at least 150 cars lined up, waiting to get in. The sunset that night was effing amazing, but we spent it east of Mammoth, on the road to Hot Creek. These aren't the best of what I shot, but they're the best I can get, having to process .jpeg through Photoscape. Three views of Ellery Lake, 0538 hours, sunrise. The road to Hot Creek Shots of the eastern escarpment at Hot Creek, looking west and north, no color changes on my part whatsoever. The colors actually looked just like they look here. Hot Creek Looking NW, same shot, different zoom, but the light changed. Finally, Mt. Morrison, which could easily be Mount Doom, due to it's extreme rock walls/faces, experimenting with higher ISO than I usually use w/the Panny LX5, It's 320, where I am almost always at 80.
