Planet Mono

After arriving in Lee Vining in the afternoon, freshening up and an early dinner, I drove down to Mono Lake’s South Tufa area. I had previously visited this fascinating place (I think I mentioned here and there already that I love the Mono Basin, did I?;-) and just wanted to see it again.

The place was teeming with photographers (I wrote about it here), which was a bit unfortunate because it was not easy to avoid having one of them in the frame. I did manage to make quite some photos, to my own surprise – the rest of the images will be black & white, so here’s a color single to begin with:

As it is often the case when working a scene, one ends up with different takes that are equally interesting – here’s a frame with a more conventional 3:2 framing and different processing:
