New on 500px : Fire Wisps by Pcoskun by Pcoskun

I’ve gone through pretty much all of my images from my Eastern Sierra trip, and am now wanting to get back out and explore and photograph new scenes. This is another image from mono lake. I had found this composition prior to sunset and saw how the clouds were building up right above the scene. Right at sunset, the high clouds caught the fiery oranges and reds of sunset and reflected onto the tufa formations and water itself.

View on black!

There are few things I enjoy more than shooting a beautiful clear night sky, but when greeted by a dreamlike alien world such as Mono Lake, suddenly the experience is elevated. Here’s a new one, it’s a simple exposure, subtle and dark. I really hope you guys enjoy viewing as much as I did shooting it.

Tufa (too’-fah) is essentially common limestone. What is uncommon about this limestone is the way it forms. Typically, underwater springs rich in calcium (the stuff in your bones) mix with lakewater rich in carbonates (the stuff in baking soda). As the calcium comes in contact with carbonates in the lake, a chemical reaction occurs resulting in calcium carbonate–limestone. The calcium carbonate precipitates (settles out of solution as a solid) around the spring, and over the course of decades to centuries, a tufa tower will grow. Tufa towers grow exclusively underwater, and some grow to heights of over 30 feet. The reason visitors see so much tufa around Mono Lake today is because the lake level fell dramatically after water diversions began in 1941.

Figurines called Sand Tufa’s (pronounced toofah), gradually jettison up from salty floors as freshwater springs percolate through briny lake-bottom sand. Intricate sand tubes and columns become exposed as winds strip away their sandy coverings, and cast reflections off the shoreline of Mono Lake, CA. According to research data, this shallow lake basin is probably 1-3 million years old; making it among the most ancient lakes in North America. Embracing roughly 400 recorded vertebrate species within its watershed, Mono Lake and its surrounding areas encompass one of California¬タルs richest natural resources. Coupled with the Milky Way¬タルs expanse; it gives the viewer a sense of an ecosystem struggling for survival.
