Photo Of The Day 10/5/2012

The Beautiful Desolate Earth by Eleanor Caputo

Eleanor Caputo submitted this photograph to Your Favorite Places and it’s my selection for today’s Photo Of The Day. Here’s what she writes about taking this photograph, “I made this shot with a 10-20 Sigma gold fisheye lens. The formations sticking out of the water are called tufas. They are only formed under water so you can see how far Mono Lake has receded. 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.”
