Old Boat Dock - Lake Mamie, Mammoth Lakes, California

The Mammoth Lake region of the Eastern Sierras is well named, with a large number of large and small lakes dotting the landscape. Lake Mamie is a small lake that is situated between Lake Mary and Horseshoe Lake, but is very popular with fishermen as it provides a protected area for fishing. Another attraction is the view of Lake Mary from high above it which provides quite the scenic landscape. Like most lakes, walking around the lake provides some direct compositions and objects that can be used as foreground elements. My buddy, Bobby Strader, and I decided to explore and found this deserted old boat dock with a couple of boats. The only way to capture the dock and boats was to get low and shoot very wide. I think it came out better than I expected.
