Mono Lake

Three images from my trip to Mono County the week before last.

It’s not hard to take good pictures at Mono Lake, as long as you get there early. And by early, I mean half an hour or so before dawn. That way, you get to see the pre-dawn pink light of the sun gradually working its way down the mountains of Yosemite to the west. The pink mountains are then reflected in the lake. The best pictures of Mono Lake are all taken with some cloud in the sky, so that the clouds also pick up the pink dawn light, but that’s one thing you can’t control – no clouds the three days I was there.

I took over 300 pictures at Mono, most taken between 6.30am and about 8.30am (also a few in the evening), but I noticed that the 11 best “keepers” were all taken in the 15 minutes between 6.52 and 7.07am. Here are three of them:
