The Range of Light

The majestic colors and textures of the great American outdoors have always captivated me. I immerse myself in the outdoors, and everything is suspended in a moment of uncertainty, leaving conflicting sensations of calm and of growing anxiety unsolved. This feeling, and the ever-changing landscapes around me constantly inspire me. I first picked up a camera 15 years ago and seamlessly fell into documenting the breathtaking landscapes that I saw throughout my backpacking trips across the Sierra Nevada.

This set of photos in particular is a selection from one of my favorite areas in the Eastern Sierra Nevada, located northeast of Mt. Whitney in the heart of “Range of Light.”
