California Fall Color in the Eastern Sierra

In the next month I hope to once again make a brief trip to Bishop, California to enjoy the changing colors of the quaking aspens (Populus tremuloides). Below are the websites and photographers I follow to stay abreast of how conditions are changing as the autumn season progresses. I will be carrying several cameras with me this year so I don’t have to change lenses in the field. The lenses I find most useful are 16-35 or 15mm fisheye, 24-105, 70-200. I will also carry a small Lumix LX3 infrared-converted camera with which the below image was shot:

Shameless plug: I’ve got a nice collection of fall color photos. Check them out, they really are pretty good if I do say so myself. (Heck, when the colors are peaking its hard to take a bad photo of turning aspens.)
