Aspens, Conway Summit, CA

I was on a photography trip with friends who knew of this place, just north of Mono Lake, called Conway Summit, that had these wonderful aspens. I love the white barks and the "eyes" they have on their trunks. I found this spot and it seemed like a perfect composition. Little did I know that another photographer I know, John Sexton, had found that exact same spot a couple of years earlier. While I never try to duplicate a photograph I have seen, I don't think I should avoid images just becasue someone else has photographed it before me.
