Solitary Reflections on Mono Lake

Back to the Mono Lake collection, this image really evokes the somewhat zen state of mind I get in sometimes when seeking out just the right shot. This was another from the same sunset, in August 2010, as my earlier post. The colors reflecting in the water were stunning, and no one else was anywhere in sight.

I think this might be my favorite of the photos I’ve just had printed for the Urban Bazaar Vagabond fair. Stop by and see it in person; I’ll be there (1371 9th Ave, San Francisco) tomorrow, Oct 16, from 11-5.

Solitary Reflections on Mono Lake

Reflections of a sunset on Mono Lake, August 2010

Mono Lake Tufa

Mono Lake, just east of Yosemite National Park, is an amazing saline lake that nearly disappeared when Los Angeles diverted water from the Mono Basin. The Mono Lake Committee launched a legal battle that ultimately managed to save the lake, and it is nearly back to its former levels, supporting a diverse ecosystem of flora & fauna. It’s another frequently photographed spot in my new home state, and one I finally managed to visit last year on a solo road trip up to Idaho.

Exploring Morro Bay

Morro Rock is a giant solitary rock jutting out of a tiny strip of land that extends out from the Central Coast of California, not too far south of Big Sur. It’s a striking landmark that has been a frequent target of photographers, for good reason.

I came away from my one visit to Morro Rock and its Bay with several photos I was happy with. This is one of them, viewing the Rock from the state park to the north, during the magic sunset hour.
