STRANGE PHENOMENA / California
Exploring Mammoth Lakes is definitely not like exploring Yosemite National Park but I’m sure it can probably take a good decade, checking out all the nooks and crannies. This one photo was taken at Twin Lakes which is right near the Mammoth Village in California. A short 5 minute drive will get you there.
When we arrived at the lake we got out of the car and started looking around. This time, rather than focusing on the lake and surrounding nature, I tried focusing on the hidden things that people don’t pay attention to – the reflection of the trees on the slightly windy lake. Even in real life it looked like a painting. Like I’m part of Robin Williams’s movie “What Dreams May Come”.
After coming back from Twin Lakes, it was time to go through my treasure, the photos I took of the beautiful scenery surrounded us while exploring and enjoying the day. When I saw this picture, in color, I immediately knew I would want to make it to a black and white photograph. Why? Pretty much because of two reasons. I have worked on a different image, I call ….., and I felt that the color version just didn’t have enough of an impact.
I call this picture “Strange Phenomena” because I have noticed that something in the picture was looking strange. It wasn’t bad, just strange.
