The Eastern side of the Sierra Nevada Mountains are know for their Apsen groves that turn in the Fall starting at the higher elevations at the start of Fall or a few weeks later. The higher groves backlight brillantly off the slopes, but typically don't last long if not at all. High winds strip the leaves, hard freezes turn them brown, and drought shorten their season. But droughts also give us some red heads, a tough color out in the West with few Maples or other red prone trees. This year was a drought season and already on openning day some groves were pretty stripped of leaves. This is a classic shot using my 400mm to pick up the panorama with a dozen stiches. What I learned was with 40 mph gust, doing layered focusing didn't work well at certain boundaries. You will see this in the pano, but next time I will do better. Gusty winds come with the territory at 9000 feet. You can see the East Beach of Mono lake that is 17 miles away and the background help gives unique feel of the place. Part of my style is to have foreground of interest and I found the Rabbit Bush blooming the perfect props I needed.
