Autumn yellow near Bishop, California

Bishop, on Highway 395 in the Owens Valley, is an excellent place for nature photography throughout the year.  Mountain valleys in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains to the west of Bishop offer splendid vistas and can be particularly colorful in the autumn.  The uniform color of these leaves were visually appealing.  In fact, the entire stretch of Highway 395 through the Owens Valley offers a variety of scenic views, and I recommend it to the traveler who has time to explore both the road and its surrounding byways.
