Mono Lake Dreamtime by ErwinBuske

Mono Lake Dream Time
This iimage is of an unexpected and beautiful sunset at Mono Lake California. Most photographers were positioned at a completly different location looking the oposite direction of this sunset, and many had already given up and returned home. A small opening in the clouds over the eastern Sierras is all it took to illuminate the western part of the lake with spectacular light and a powerful afterglow about 5 minutes after the sun had technically set. This is one sunset I will never forget! This image is best viewed on a large screen against a black background. Thanks for viewing my image.

Heart for Wahclella by ErwinBuske

One thing I always remember to do when photographing a scene is to occasionally look behind me, Often there is more of a show in the opposite direction of the primary attraction, in this case Wahclella Falls (Columbia Gorge, Oregon). To me moving with the moment and staying fluid is as important as previsualization of a scene. I am not sure what the small Falls on the left is called, but I thought these falls along with the heart shaped sky contributed strongly to the feel of this composition. I am very happy the way this turned out and from this evening at the Falls, this is the image that lingers most in my memory-not the falls at all! Thanks for viewing my image.

Leprechaun Lake Sunrise by ErwinBuske

From a rocky peninsula on the shore of the Enchantment’s Leprechaun Lake, Prusik Peak surrounded by the alpine glow of sunrise and golden larches is reflected in the blue waters. Autumn is the ideal time to visit the Enchantments when the larches turn bright gold. This images is from my six day backpacking trip in early October of this year. Thanks for viewing my image.

Mirror of Enchantment by ErwinBuske

This tarn was located just outside our camp site at the Enchantments Leprechaun Lake. The tarn is much more protected from the usual evening winds that spread out over the Enchantment Basin making possible a perfect reflection of Presik Peak and the Golden Larches in the small Tarn. The Contrast of the Blue and Gold was very alluring, with large boulders next to the waters providing a perfect place for meditation and reflection.
