Mount Conness and Cathedral Peak


"And he'd tell you a tale of the old days
When the country was wild all around
Sit out under the stars of the Milky Way
And listen while the coyotes howl"

"Well he cursed all the roads and the oil men
And he cursed the automobile
Said this is no place for an hombre like I am
In this new world of asphalt and steel"

"Then he'd look off some place in the distance
At something only he could see
He'd say all that's left now of the old days
Those damned old coyotes and me"

"One morning they searched his adobe
He disappeared without even a word
But that night as the moon crossed the mountain
One more coyote was heard"

-Don Edwards (Coyotes)

Hello and welcome to Sierralara. I hope you enjoy my photographs as much as I have enjoyed making them. I have an immense love for the outdoors and enjoy discovering new photographic opportunities in places that interest me. My name is Cliff LaPlant and I am an award winning landscape/nature photographer based in Alpine California. I spend a great deal of my time traveling to remote locations, searching for those rare opportunities to capture photographs that are not commonly seen. All of my photographs have been captured using Nikon cameras and lenses and most were created using a tripod, to ensure high image quality. I am currently shooting with the INCREDIBLE Nikon D800 high resolution camera system.

If you are interested in making a purchase, simply click on the desired photograph(s) and hit the "Buy" icon and follow the instructions for the product(s) you selected. There are numerous image options available including, digital downloads (personal and commercial), fine art prints (Lustre, Glossy, Metallic, as well as Giclee water color finishes), traditional, stretched, and flat mounted canvas, and the luminous intensity of Metal Prints.

Feel free to add comments or e-mail me ( reference any of my photographs or the locations they were created. Sierralara is always being updated and new photographs, as well as descriptions, are continuously being added.

How to best navigate through this site: Above, you will see three buttons, "Home", "Browse", and "Search".

---"Home" will always return you to the home page (this page).

---"Browse" will take you into the main Sierralara photography archives. "Fine Art Images For Purchase" are images broken down into geographical areas. "Adventures in Photography" are images I have created during specific trips and the numerous galleries showcase a number of photographs and videos as well as the dates they were created. "Photography by Theme" displays galleries by theme such as "Sunsets" or "Waterfalls".

---"Search" enables the viewer to type in a word (tag) or phrase to display all images in Sierralara that have to do with that topic. For instance, if you search the word "Mountain", all of the photographs in the Sierralara site that have to do with mountains (and there's a lot!) will be displayed.
