Weekly Photo Challenge: Earth


Last October as I was driving home from a little time in the desert and the Sierras, I stopped along highway 395 and took this morning shot of the Sierras near Lone Pine, California.  The cars were whizzing by me as I framed the shot so I didn’t spend a lot of time to get it right.  The lava rock and a few scraggly sage bushes were the only foreground I could use but I still liked this photograph because of the mix of the rocks, the face of the mountain range, and the dramatic clouds above.  To me it is a simple photo but one that catches the essence of “Earth”.

  1. The lighting contrasts make this an outstanding photo, and the repeating diagonals, also.
