Awesome place, awesome morning.
Visiting the Alabama Hills is ideal in December. Camping is free and everywhere and the roads are good enough for any vehicle (well, most of the roads).
I wanted to shoot this pano with the Phase One IQ4, but it started corrupting every file I shot (not the first time nor the first day). By the time I had it behaving again, the light was gone.
Mt Whitney is seen near far right in the far distance.
