When photographing the eastern Sierra’s Mono Lake, I hope for one of those fiery sunsets that light up the sky and illuminate the landscape. However, what I wish for and what I get often differs. Such is life… and photography. In this case there was neither an incendiary sunset nor even a single cloud in the sky. Fortunately on such evenings, the sky darkens faster than the nearly white tufa. There are a few minutes before complete darkness when the tufa picks up any ambient light and almost glows against the dark blue sky and water. It wasn’t the scene I was looking for, but I like the result.
