Eastern Sierra, Owens Valley, Mono Lake & Great Basin Desert - Sieren
Nameless Lake
Eastern Sierra Nevada

An unnamed lake near the northeastern border of the Yosemite wilderness. This was shot pretty late in the morning but a break in cloud cover gave some decent lighting. The nice water color is from melting glaciers/icefields. Found this nice little spot while scouting new workshop locations.

One thing about no filters is that you are getting the best clarity out of you lens. Stacking many plastic or resin filters over will soften you image. Even a polarizer will soften it to an extent so if you don't need them don't use them.
