The iconic South Tufa at Mono Lake, CA. On a five-day road-trip around California I made sure to swing past, as this was a spot I had wanted to shoot at for a while. I really couldn’t have asked for better lighting. The layered clouds made for a spectacular backdrop against the sky, and the shifting light meant that the view changed every few moments- you can see in this shot that the tufa in the centre of the shot are in light while off of to the right, the water and formations are in shadow. With a polarizer filter, the contrast in the sky and with the calcified features was so striking. While I can’t wait to go back someday for a shoot with my whole kit, I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed myself that afternoon.
