Photo By Greg Clure

  • Title: The Sierra Range From Mono Lake

  • Nearest Town: Lee Vining

  • Description: Nestled at the edge of the arid Great Basin and the snowy Sierra Nevada mountains in California, Mono Lake is an ancient saline lake that covers over 70 square miles and supports a unique and productive ecosystem. The lake has no fish; instead it is home to trillions of brine shrimp and alkali flies. Freshwater streams feed Mono Lake, supporting lush riparian forests of cottonwood and willow along their banks. Along the lakeshore, scenic limestone formations known as tufa towers rise from the water's surface.
  • Gear: Canon 5D Mark II w/ EF24-105 f/4L, Tripod
