Mount Laguna

This is the Laguna Mountain Lodge in the Cuyamaca mountains during winter. It's a fun place to stop for a quick snack or a souvenir after a day of frolicking in the snow. If it's getting late, you can rent one of the rustic cabins out back and enjoy the site of icicles hanging from the eves. In the summertime, it's a nice mountain getaway.
This photo was taken on highway 79, the road that winds through the Cuyamaca Mountains toward Mt. Laguna and Julian. Most of this highway has no stopping areas in which to pull over and park, so I snapped this photo as we were flying past Stonewall Peak.
Desert View
Lifted from an old and slightly-blemished paper photograph, this shot of a remote campsite in the far eastern reaches of San Diego County is still pretty cool.

"ICON" As photographed in the Laguna Mountains on the GARNET PEAK trail.
Deer ? , A burnt out tree from the CEDAR fires back in "2003" this does in fact look like a white tail deer known to frequent this area and at dusk, one could easily be convinced this was a deer. Photographed by Robert Chartier in the Laguna Mountains.
 "WORKING TREE" Just another example of a miricle in nature as this tree appreared to be bent over and cultivating the field it was standing in like a farmer in his field. Photographed by Robert Chartier in the Laguna Mountains.
"Halloween Mask" A tree in the Laguna Mountains that looks like it has copied an image off a  Hollywood horror flick movie poster. Photographed by Robert Chartier.
"HOW CLOSE" ??? Mountain lion paw print in SNOW on the NOBEL trail in the Laguna Mountains which was very FRESH:-)  I estimate this to be a 160 to 190 lb. These wild cats are well  known to attack humans from time to time and they can take down a full size white tail deer in the area with little problem. This print was just about the size of my hand!!

"BIG SKY" Beautiful cloud formation in the Laguna Mountains 3-3-2013 caught in between a rain storm followed by sunshine. Photographed by Robert Chartier.
P.S. I frequently break the rule of THIRDS in my landscape photography, this image is another fairly good example of why breaking the rules can indeed work when a frame can express more of an image going outside the box:-)
