Dawn to Dusk

Mono Lake is a large lake in Central California. It is believed to have been formed some 760,000 years ago. Because there are no outlets, there is a high salt content in the water. The lake is known for its unusual rock formations (Tufas). Tufas are formed from a chemical reaction between calcium and carbonates in the water. They grew under the water, but are visible because the lake levels have dramatically decreased over the years. I captured the images below in 2011 and the interesting thing is that they were captured in the morning and evening of the same day.
