Dried plants and distant mountains
Monitor Pass, near the California/Nevada border
Route 89 crosses the Sierra Nevada mountains south of Lake Tahoe through Monitor Pass. The 8315 ft. Pass is marked by
vegetation adapted to the altitude and winter snows.

The image was posterized to dramatize the colors, with the sky then blurred. Posterizing always makes colors look
richer, but the saturation can be increased before or after the posterization to fine tune the effect.
