The Story Behind This Photograph:

Taken in the Alabama Hills, California, on January 26th, 2020.

From the Alabama Hills you can see six of California’s tallest mountains, each over 14,000′ high. However, the view is dominated by a smaller summit known as Lone Pine Peak. Thanks to its proximity to the Alabama Hills, as well as its unbroken 9,000-feet east face, Lone Pine Peak looms over the landscape in a display of sheer grandeur. In this photo I wanted to emphasize this grandeur, so I placed a human figure in the frame (a self-portrait, taken from roughly 300 feet away) to create a strong contrast and sense of scale for the mountain.
