Description

Storm clouds from the night before lingered at Mono Lake the next morning as sunrise approached. Rain was falling as I walked to the lake shore, and I almost dismissed the morning as "rained out", but the shower drifted out over the lake in time for stunning sunrise light to light up the breaking clouds and the lake's interesting tufa limestone rock formations.
