- Description: I love winter at Mono Lake because of the quiet and solitude. During this time of year snow can be frequent. On this occasion, I arrived between storms. Conditions were very cold; however the wind had become completely calm. This image was captured just after sunset, when the lakes water was very still, reflecting both these timeless Tufas and the pink of the sky, in it's mirror-like waters.
