California: Creative Sierra Nevada Mountain Images

I have a special affinity for the Californian landscape since I was born and raised there. It is one of the most incredibly diverse landscapes I have ever been to, including deserts, dramatic mountain peaks, rugged coastlines, and some of the most awe inspiring forests and trees in the world.

The Sierra Nevada is the longest continuous mountain range in America and contains the largest block of granite on the planet. The mountains here are rugged and beautiful, and I have spent much of my free time in the summer exploring this gigantic range - these are some of my favorite images from those travels.
