Wright's Lake Lagoon

The photo that I posted Saturday is of the wier to Wright's Lake, a sub-alpine lake along the western boundary of the Desolation Wilderness. This shot was taken at the other end of the lake. The lagoon is formed as the South Fork of Silver Creek meanders through a large, swampy meadow on its journey to the lake.

The stand of young Lodgepole Pines borders the lagoon, now cut off from the creek by low water. Freezing temperature at the 6940-foot elevation have left a thick layer of ice on the lagoon, even an hour before sunset.

Shot settings: f/5.6, 1/250 second shutter speed, 48 mm focal length, ISO 200 in aperture priority.
