A Point of Perspective

0264-308fw

Over the years I have shown many images of the Alabama Hills and the Eastern Sierras, usually from the viewpoint of being in the Hills. In the image above we’re further back, and the true magnitude of the Sierras is evident. From where the camera is located it is 2 1/2 miles to Lone Pine (the row of trees and buildings just beyond the desert ground cover), 4-5 miles to the Alabama Hills and 12-14 miles to the mountain peaks. For those interested, we’re looking at 10,000 ft of verticle mountain (LP elevation 3700′, peaks from 12-14,500′)
