mono lake

Mono lake is in a valley east of the Sierra Nevada mountains, in California. It is fed by snow melt, and has no outlet. The water is highly alkaline. Beds of minerals seep up underwater and form pillers called tufa, which are exposed when the lake level drops. It is an unusual place in the summer, and in these winter scenes it is even stranger. Covered with snow, and under the gray sky, it has an arctic feel about the place.
