MONO LAKE

I took the photographs in this book over a 12 year period, beginning when I first acquired a digital SLR camera. Mono Lake is one of my favorite locations on earth to photograph - with the bonus that it is within a weekend driving distance from my home. The tufa and ancient saline lake are the foundation for creating striking images, but importantly the conditions are always different on each repeated visit. Situated in a high (6000 ft elevation) bowl beneath the Sierra Nevada mountains Mono Lake gets plenty of weather; on several occasions I have arrived during an afternoon thunderstorm that providentially cleared just in time for sunset. Mono Lake truly combines stunning scenery with evanescent light.
