Fire over Mono Lake

Thank you for visiting - ❤ with gratitude! Fave if you like it, add comments below, like the Facebook page, order beautiful HDR prints at qualityHDR.com.

We spent an extended weekend in the Eastern Sierra mountains to see the fall colors. On the first day we went to see the tufa at Mono Lake - no fall colors there, but we witnessed an interesting spectacle of nature in the late afternoon and in the blue hour.

Tufa are limestone towers, formed when carbonate minerals precipitate out of underground spring water entering the very salty water of Mono Lake. The lake level dropped, and we can see now the tufa above the lake.

I processed a balanced, a paintery, and a photographic HDR photo from three RAW exposures, merged them selectively, and carefully adjusted the color balance and curves. I welcome and appreciate constructive feedback.
