Exceptional Photography

Stunning pictures of many desert places both locally and further afield. My only critisism is that i felt the photos were a little too highlighted, losing its natural look

The Mountain Light Gallery features photography by the mountain climber, Galen Rowell. He has traveled to many high altitude adventures including the Himalayas and has taken beautiful pictures of these areas. You will be awestruck by these pictures that he took. You can purchase copies of some of his photographs.

If you love photography then visit this gallery. Photography features lots of local shots from the Eastern Sierras but there is photography from around the world too.

Not to be missed photos that can move you. There are several masters with their work displayed. We return every time we are in Bishop.

A great selection of table books, shirts and hats etc. are available. The staff... More

We stopped here to look at the pictures in the gallery. There were actually quite a few more than I thought there would be. Don't look too closely at some of them though as they are best viewed from a distance. If you look too closely, a lot of things are not in sharp focus and seem over saturated. Still,... More

If you can't afford a photograph, there are books and cards available for sale. Well worth a... More
