Lots of people just drive past Mono Lake, and the people who do visit South
Tufa take pictures from the parking lot, or walk between the tufa for a few
minutes and leave.
The place is magical at the golden hours, and beyond.
Like most place the weather needs to co-operate, meaning for me the best
time is right before/after, or the morning after a storm.
The colors at these times are outstanding and well worth the wait, but again
the circumstances/light have to be just right, as with any photo opp.

Also locked up here. Mav, please continue to post your imanges. I guess this time of year the posting on the board slows down, but your photo's are wonderful to look at and are something
that I only hope to duplicate someday. =D>

Whoa, Maverick!
Your images are beautiful. If you need positive feedback from THIS bunch, just say so.
I got the hint. HST would not be the same if you bailed on us now, buddy. I love our work, keep it up!
Let 'er Buck! Back in Oregon again!

It is a beautiful picture. Seems i can get to it, but i hit it soon after you posted so maybe it's cached on my pc. I would love to see the same picture with the water level about 25' higher and you in a wetsuit at the same position.. :) Kinda like it used to be..

All my pics of Mono are usually taken by whomever is riding shotgun as we leave the park and head North. Hence i have no really good shots of Mono Lk either. I stopped there once and walked around and the Tuffas are amazing. Sad they are not still in their element.
