Convict Lake and the surrounding mountains have to be one of the hardest places to photograph in the Eastern Sierra. Any kind of normal lens cuts off either the lake or the tops of the peaks. A wide-angle lens can include the entire lake but then the surrounding peaks look flat and distant. My attempts to photograph Convict Lake for the better part of 20 years did not result in successful images. Finally, in October 2004, I decided to walk to the backside of the lake to look at a small trail with aspens. The weather was cloudy, but it was also bright. Along the way, I noticed that the lake was exceptionally calm. Fortunately, this was a midweek day and no boats disturbed the near perfect reflection of the towering Laurel Mountain. This combined with the soft light, made a wonderfully luminous image.
