Artist's Description

Convict Lake is located along Highway 395 in the Eastern High Sierra just southeast of Mammoth Lakes, California, USA. It is due west of Crowley Lake nestled right up against Mount Morrison. The Lake has a similar appearance to Lake Louise, Alberta, Canada in that the water has a greenish tint surrounded by a mountain range. This one photograph was taken using super high contrast film with a polarizing filter to bring out the colors of the water. Canon Elan, Royal Gold 25 film, 20mm lens.

One of the many things to do around the lake is hike up into the John Muir Wilderness, fish on the lake and paddleboating.

The lake was named after an incident in 1871, where a group of convicts escaped from prison in Carson City. A posse, led by Sheriff Robert Morrison, encountered the convicts near the head of what is now Convict Creek. Morrison was killed in the encounter, and Mount Morrison was named after him. (source Wiki – Convict Lake).

This is one of three photographs from a series I have in my portfolio about Convict Lake, Mammoth Lakes area, CA.
