Skywatch Friday, Weekend Reflection: Lundy Lake

October 23, 2009, it was the first day of our photo trip to Eastern Sierra, we woke up early to first photographed the sunrise over the Mono Lake, we were than at the ghost town of Bodie. Grace was tired and wasn't feeling too well, we thus went back to Bridgeport and had sandwich from the local butcher. In the afternoon, we joined again with the rest of the group at Lundy Lake.

Lundy Lake is formed by one of the many tributaries that originally feed into the Mono Lake. It was damed in 1911. We first went further upstream to photograph the pond formed by a beaver dam. In the first two pictures, you can see the perfect blue sky reflected from the pond filled with trees fallen by the beavers.

The main purpose for us coming to the lake is to photograph the Fall Colors. Unlike the Northeast, the Fall Colors of the Sierra Mountain is mostly yellow. This tree at the bank of the lake was showing off its Fall Color at its best.

Now we see the Lundy Lake proper and the Aspen tree turing yellow along the lake.

Here we were looking toward the west from the dam with view of the whole lake and the Sierra Mountain at the back drop. The lake is famous for trout fishing.

There are few things that beat the colours of the autumn leaves (or the melody for that matter), and when you throw in a bit of blue sky and some great reflections - it becomes a great post.
