Sierra Nevada Forest Photos

For my birthday, Mike and I had gone down to the Sierra Nevada National Forest, specifically to see snow, Shaver Lake, and Huntington lake. Because it was very cold, and I had forgotten to bring proper shows, most of our time was on the road, with silence and a constantly changing sky. I actually like the idea of having the road present in the pictures, as it clearly shows adventure, with each picture communicating a different mood. The featured image for example, looks to me very surreal and endless.

The start of our adventure. You can see how windy the roads are, and a mix of burnt and live trees.
The dam wall of Shaver Lake. I’ve never actually been that close to it before.
The golden rays of the sun really make for pretty pictures.
I enjoy how the atmosphere of the forest keeps alternating from cloudy to sunny.
The end of our adventure. The sun is setting, and we have a view of Shaver Lake from high above.

Shaver Lake winter wonderland

With the atmospheric river tearing through the Valley last week and dumping tons of snow on the mountains we headed up the 168 on Wednesday. We knew everything would be closed but we thought we’d be able to happen upon some great photo opportunities. We were not disappointed!
