I’m home from a long week-end of camping and photography with friends old and new. I’m still culling images, but here’s one from Mono Lake taken shortly after sunset. I was set up to shoot west but looking around I saw this cloud developing to the northeast so I turned my camera around and waited for this to unfold. This cloud formation and color were wonderful and a beautiful end to a fun day.

The swirling clouds look like a halo of sorts over the formation … FABULOUS!
Thank you so much, Denise! Those clouds were really neat and not a formation I’ve seen often. I had this one printed, now to hang it. 😀
How stunning!! I love those unexpected and lovely surprises that nature gives us when we pay attention. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
Thank you so much, Jill! Me too. 😀😀
What a fantastic shot! I just made it the background image on my laptop. 🙂
Thank you so much, Paul for the lovely comment and compliment!
Now that’s a unique take on Mono Lake: well done. Looking in an unexpected direction has been known to yield good things from time to time, and this was one of those times.
Thank you so much, Steve! It was indeed!
Deborah, this is perfect, and oh so beautiful!
Thank you so much, Jennie!!😀
You are welcome, Deborah! 😀
Nice one Deborah! The clouds formed perfectly over the rocks.
Thank you, John!! Those clouds were awesome.
This is really something! Yesterday I was looking for your blog and was not able to reach it (I think I just lacked the last “s”, lol!
I was looking to wish you a happy Easter and am finding yours today on my email! Many thanks Deborah for the sincere thought and extra effort. The card is beautiful! Wishing you and your hubby a wonderful Easter! Emille
Thank you! I hope you had a lovely Easter too! 😀
This photo is stunning, Deborah, you had me staring at it for several minutes. The colors, reflections and interesting clouds. I do love Mono Lake, what a joy to be taken there this morning. I look forward to enjoying more.
Thank you so much, Jet! I’m glad you enjoyed the image. It’s a neat place isn’t it.
I love the way the clouds are swirling above the butte. Yes, always look behind you when photographing. There could be a beautiful scene or a bear just waiting for you.
Thank you so much, Robert!
Love your whatevers, Deborah!
LOL! Thank you so much, Rebecca! 😀
Beautiful photo of such a bizarre place!
Thank you so much, Diana!
That’s simply gorgeous, Deborah. You could make a print or cards out of it. So stunning.
Thank you so much, Janet! I am thinking like you I should print this one. 😀
That looks like one of the most amazing places I’ve ever seen – fire (sky), air, earth & water. Wow! 👏🏻👏🏻
It really is an amazing place. Thank you so much, Judy!
Good eye! Gorgeous image.
Thank you, Donna!
That’s a wonderful shot, Deborah! I was lucky enough to have been visiting Mono Lake. But this sky they reserved for you. (And rightly so!)
Thank you, Peter! How wonderful that you have been to Mono Lake!! It was a special sunset as most the time I’ve been there the sunsets or sunrises haven’t been this good.
Amazing capture… worthy of enlargement and framing.
Superbly captured Deborah ! a most unusual lake vista.
Thank you so much, Ashley! It is indeed a rare and special place.
That is a lovely photo, Deborah. It looks like you might be on a different planet. There’s a significant otherworldly nature to this (at least I think so).
It feels otherworldly when there too. It’s a very different landscape under the water and when it’s exposed like this and we get to see it it’s beautiful and surreal. Thank you so much, Dan!
So beautiful, Deborah.
Thank you so much, Cheryl!
Beautiful landscape. 😊
Thank you so much, Pepper!
Thank you, Deborah. Beautiful
Thank you, John!
Wow, a great shot!
Thank you so much! 🙏🏻😀
That is an inspiring glimpse! It’s inspiring me to think of a time when we would have seen this, and assumed that these unique rocks are spewing out that (gorgeous) swirls of red into the sky… What could it mean? 🙂 It’s easy to see how stories and legends can emerge in this setting. Thank you for sharing this inspiring moment!
I too can see how stories and myths could emerge seeing scenery like this on our planet. Mono Lake has an interesting history. Thank you so much!
Your question this morning was interesting, but I ‘em read it too early to get that deep. I will say mine was a winding and curvy road/journey.😀
I’m not familiar with its history, though I can see how it’d provide a fertile ground for legends and myths!
I scheduled my post, it’s too early for me to be awake, but it’s the only way I found to circumvent an issue I came across in posting…
I think long, curvy, and winding are the best kind of journeys 😃
The tufas were uncovered when too much water was allowed to be released to So. Calif during the ongoing water wars. They aren’t allowed to take as much water now, but still get some.
I schedule my post early as well it works for many of us to do that. 😀
Thank you, Brian!
Ooo, amazing, Deborah! I’m glad you had a special time.
Thank you so much, Manja!!
