I had been in the Mammoth Lakes area in California for a few days shooting, and was heading south to San Diego for the same thing. I left very early and was coming down out of the mountains towards Bishop when I hit a mesa and an area known as Round Valley. Off in the distance was this mountain; Mt. Tom. I then saw the grazing pasture with the horses, and I was reminded of a Ansel Adams print (in the case of that print I believe it was shot further south at the base of Mt. Whitney). I stopped, grabbed my tripod, and found a spot to shoot. The morning was cold, but when the sun started to hit the top of the mountain I forgot all about it.
