I made this shot with a 10-20 Sigma gold fisheye lens. The formation sticking out of the water are called tufas. They are only formed under water so you can see how far Mono Lake has receded. There is no long a natural water source to feed the lake because they have diverted the water for public use. Mono Lake will one day be a memory. Normally I hope for dramatic cloud formations but on this day, I feel the smooth plain sky adds to the beauty of the desolate scene.
