Exit hwy 365 and turn into mono lake follow the trail around in to the empty parking lot on the east banks of the lake.
Always take a moment in between shots to notice any lighting changes on objects nearby. Tree tops, mountain ridges or even the shadows in which the sun may create.
After about a half an hour of shooting into the sunrise, I turned around to survey my scenery and low and behold the remains of dormant volcanoes lay rested covered in blanket of white snow. Years of left over erosion surface the water and reveal the earths true form.
