I took a trip to the Eastern Sierras recently to shoot fall colors. I had planned to go since some time in the summer, but I learned of a three-day weekend trip being led by Dave Henry, one of Canon’s Explorers of Light, which was scheduled for the time I planned to be there. Dave has led photo trips to the Eastern Sierras for over thirty years. He used to be a photojournalist for the Sacramento Bee and has been writing a column for the Bee on fall colors in the Eastern Sierra for many years. The price for the three day weekend was only $295. Canon provided one of its reps, John Bell, for the weekend. John brought every body and lens you could ever want for the trip. It sounded pretty good to me so I signed up.
It was a great trip. However, based on a quick trip through the photos I shot, I like this photo of the Sierras with the rabbit brush foreground more than the many yellow-leaved aspens I photographed.
