Sierra View, photo by Harold Davis. View this image larger.

On my way across the Tioga Pass road I stopped at Olmstead Point. I made my way out a few hundred yards, and distanced myself from the road, parking lot, and people. Then I laid my head on a rock pillow and watched the clouds hurry past.

After a while, I got up refreshed and pulled out my camera and tripod. Facing Lake Tenaya, Polly Dome, and Pywjack Dome in the distance, I created this image consisting of five separate captures.

[Nikon D300, 12-24mm zoom lens at 16mm (24mm in 35mm terms), five exposures (1/320 of a second, 1/250 of a second, 1/160 of a second, 1/100 of a second, 1/60 of a second), all exposures at f/22 and ISO 100, tripod mounted.]
