One Long Drive!

Reno, California

It's a long ride on a dusty and bumpy dirt road through an Indian Reservation, to get to these formations along Pyramid Lake.
Worth the ride to see some beautifully shaped and colorful rock formations. Hmm? Wonder why they call it Pyramid Lake??

other sizes: small medium original auto

Absolutly beautiful photograph Sandi !!! A polorizer will help the blues "pop" but I think that the perspective, exposure and subject is mesmorizing. I love it.
