Stormy Sunrise Over Mono Lake
Photo By Vidya Narasimhan

  • Title: Stormy Sunrise Over Mono Lake
  • State/Province/Region: California
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: Yosemite National Park
  • Nearest Town: Lee Vining
  • Brief Directions: Take the 120 E exit out of Yosemite National Park through Tioga Road and drive south for 5-8 miles on 395S. You will find signs to turn left (for another 5 miles) onto Mono Lake.
  • Best Season: Autumn
  • Description: I've found Mono Lake a fascinating place to photograph. The high alkaline content in the lake make it inhospitable for most water borne species to survive. I was looking for compositional elements that highlighted this harsh reality. So I was drawn towards this bark of dead wood by the shores of the lake. The storm clouds that loomed large over the lake complemented the scene as it seemed to accentuate the fact that mere survival at the lake was itself not easy. The storm clouds lit up at the first light of day to provide a colorful backdrop to this harsh scene.
