I just returned from a nice trip to the Eastern Sierra Nevada Mountains. I wanted to check in on the fall colors and get one last warm trip in before the cold weather settles in. As usual it was beautiful and my secluded spot was empty. But I brought something different with me this time. Good friend and incredible sculptor Benjamin Lavender lent me two of his pieces to photograph. It wasn’t the first time I’ve taken his work out to photograph but it was the first time I brought his work to the Sierras.
