Description

When Comet NEOWISE put on a show in July, I decided I had to get a photo of the comet over a recognizable landscape--ideally with water/reflections. After thinking a bit, I decided on Mono Lake. My thinking was that Mono Lake would provide a surreal, otherworldly setting for this otherworldly visitor (the comet). I was not disappointed! I arrived early--around 3:45am--and began "working the scene," trying out different spots. Although I initially thought I would prefer a little cove that has direct views of "pirate ship tufa," I ended up preferring a spot a bit south of that cove. This southerly location offered more sweeping views of the landscape; it also had calmer water, thus better reflections. This is my favorite shot from that amazing morning....
