Mt. Tom and Eastern Sierra peaks from Aeolian Ridge, Volcanic Tableland

My wife Karen and I stumbled upon this “cave” along a ridge while hiking around in the Volcanic Tableland north of Bishop. I call this area “Aeolian Ridge” for the wind-scoured pits and holes eroded into the volcanic tuff rock. When we climbed up into this large hollow, I noticed how part of the roof matched the horizon line of Mt. Tom, the most prominent mountain west of Bishop. I returned several months later when photographic conditions seemed more favorable, and placed my tripod-mounted camera up to the roof at the back of the hole. Fill-flash was used to light the roof of the cave because it would have gone black when exposing for the rest of the view out the “window.” The rough texture on the rocks is well-suited for canvas prints of this image.
