Mono Lake: Primordial Nature

On first visits, people use terms like, 'other worldy' and 'moonscape' to describe Mono's landscape. Is it any wonder?

May 2014: When I shot Mono Lake in the past ('06 &'07) it was mostly at sunrise. This most recent trip I shot at sunset and after. Sadly the water level is very low in this year (2014) of severe drought in California, so many of the tufas are exposed far more than in the past and visitors are walking and climbing all over them. Which explains why some images have a great deal of water and others do not.
