Convict Lake in the Sierra Nevada mountains has become a favorite photography location of mine. My friend Noah, a hiker who knows the area quite well, thankfully brought it to my attention a few years ago when I was on my way up to Mammoth Lakes, California.

The lake is somewhat tucked away just west of Highway 395. A much-needed snowstorm had just blanketed much of the area for the first time in a few seasons. After giving it a day to clear, I drove up to get the shot. I was more than thrilled at the first sight of Laurel Mountain framing the lake beautifully as always, and this time completely covered in snow.

Convict Lake, though aptly named based on its history, could be considered somewhat of a harsh moniker considering the innate beauty of the location. The tranquil essence of winter at the lake is certainly on full display in this magnificent VAST photo.

VAST PRINTS

THE HIGHEST RESOLUTION PHOTOGRAPHIC PRINTS EVER CREATED

VAST Prints are fine art photographic paper prints that arrive ready to be mounted and/or framed. They are created using the sharpest photographic printer in commercial use: a very rare specialty printer that formerly printed military surveillance imagery.  Learn more  

Every VAST Print has two certificates of authenticity hand-signed by the artist and the printmaker: one affixed to the print and one standalone. Additionally, each print is assigned a unique serial number via a permanent hologram seal and recorded in our registry. Its provenance is tracked and verified using state-of-the-art digital blockchain encryption technology.
