California’s Eastern Sierra

California’s Eastern Sierra has some of the best mountain scenery and landscapes and is a popular location for landscape photography. Hwy 395 is one of the most scenic highways with the best views of the Eastern Sierra. It begins in the Mohave Desert and heads north into the pastoral Owens Valley on the eastern side of the Sierra Nevada Mountain range. With the Eastern Sierras to the west and the White Mountains to the east this topography creates some of the best sunrises and sunsets in California. This was one of those mornings when the light and the color was hard to believe.
