Eastern Sierra Skies

We had some nice skies last week in the Eastern Sierra.
After a less than successful photo outing at Mono Lake (the birds were not cooperating) we turned our back to the lake and saw some dramatic clounds building to the north.

Later, as the day was drawing to a close, I looked out and saw another beautiful sky as the setting sun illuminated the clouds above the ridge across the canyon from our cabin

The Eastern Sierra skies are the best I've seen so far with my own eyes. I wanna go back there for a road trip.

Very beautiful clouds. Almost looks like a glowing fire in the third shot.

Wonderful pictures! We were in Telluride, Colorado this summer and some of the clouds that came over the mountains were beautiful!

Great collection of pictures. I liked the different colors of clouds from pure white to peachy.

Beautiful skies, Martha. I enlarged to study those rocks - so interesting in their shape and texture!

I feel like I've seen you on a trail. Your pictures remind me I still have some hiking to do before the weather sets in. Do you snowshoe?
