Rock Creek December – Mono County, CA
Happy New Year!
I’ve had a fascination with mountain streams for quite a while now. The sound and atmosphere of water rushing in its travels from the high country to the valley is inspiring to me, and tends to help me feel peaceful & happy. This fascination seems to be emerging into the beginnings of a body of photographic work, exploring the shapes of water in motion in these streams in the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
Rock Creek is one of the streams I like to frequent on my trips to the Sierras. Rock Creek Road closely parallels Rock Creek starting at Tom’s Place, and ending in the high country at the trailhead for the Little Lakes Valley in the John Muir Wilderness.
This has been an unusually dry winter so far in the Eastern Sierra, so when I visited this spot in early December, there was very little snow on the ground. I was attracted to the movement of the water between and beneath the ice.
