Illusion - Sunrise in the High Sierra - Kaweah Basin


Kaweah Basin at twilight

Early morning twilight along the shores of an un-named lake in Kaweah Basin, Sequoia National Park. The magic of Kaweah Basin seems to resonate from ridge to ridge. Watching the sunrise from anywhere in the basin as the peaks change color before your eyes is like magic.

This is an image that was years in the making. Since the first time I heard of Kaweah Basin, I have wanted to photograph the Kaweah Peaks at twilight. After two failed attempts to reach this remote area in as many years, my third attempt made this dream a reality.
