 Summer Flowers, Rock Creek – Inyo National Forest, CA

Here’s an older image of one of my favorite places in the Eastern Sierra, Rock Creek (for an image of the creek in winter and a little more of the story, please check out my January 2012 Blog).

The spring before I took this photo (2010) had brought a lot of snow, so, even in August (at an elevation of about 10,000 feet), the creek was full of rushing water and lined with flowers in full bloom. I was intrigued by the power of the dancing waters and by the light accentuating the colors of the flowers.
