Belt Of Venus Mono Lake Reflection
Photo By Jeff Sullivan

  • Title: Belt Of Venus Mono Lake Reflection
  • State/Province/Region: California
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: Mono Basin National Scenic Area
  • Nearest Town: Lee Vining
  • Best Season: Winter
  • Description: The shadow of the earth follows the sunset light into the sky as darkness creeps over the landscape below. The planet Venus is often visible close to the horizon at sunrise and sunset when this colorful effect can be seen, so it's often referred to as the "Belt of Venus". The ultra-fine alkali dust of the Mono Basin is not great to breathe, but nearly every night it does an amazing job scattering sunset light, especially on calm Winter evenings.
  • Gear: Canon EOS 40D, EF-S 10-22mm lens

    Thank you kindly for the compliment on the "Winter White" image Les! After enjoying your wave image, I thought to share this one also from here in California. I think this day was about 25 to 30...
