Storm Over Long Valley

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On October 11, 2012 (10-11-12) a double rainbow appeared over the Long Valley Caldera in the Eastern Sierra near the town of Mammoth Lakes, Calif. When a double rainbow forms, the second arc is seen outside the primary arc, and has the order of its colours reversed, red facing toward the other one, in both rainbows. This second rainbow is caused by light reflecting twice inside water droplets. The photo was taken while it was still raining.

OWAC Shirley Miller Photo Contest Winner

OWAC Shirley Miller Photo Contest Winner

I recently attended the Outdoor Writer’s Association of California Fall conference held in Mammoth Lakes, Calif. Conference attendees were encouraged to submit some of their images taken during the conference to the Shirley Miller photo contest. At the end of conference banquet they announced the winners of the show’s two categories, Action and Landscape. I was a little disappointed that they didn’t choose any of my photos for either category, but I figured I was very new to the organization and needed to learn more about what they were looking for.  Then they announced the Shirley Miller Memorial Photo Contest-Overall winner and it was my photo of the snow fence on the top of Mammoth Mountain. Needless to say I was very surprised and honored. Thank you OWAC and the Sheet <www.thesheetnews.com> in Mammoth Lakes for publishing the photo and the info about the award.
