“Cold, sterile, subtle beauty, I felt like it was just me and God out there. So quiet, so beautiful,” states acclaimed wilderness photographer and adventurer Brian Ernst, after a 3-day solo winter kayaking expedition at Mono Lake in mid-February. Brian’s easy-going manner and passion for photography inspires people and photographers of all levels.
