Those moments in time when you wonder things like…

How did this start?
How long has this been here?
How long did it take for it to transform into what it is today?

I’m not a scientist, at all. I have a friend who’s a geologist, I know she has the answers to these questions, well at least some of them.

When you’re venturing out into the world, and experiencing new places do ever see a massive rock formation and wonder?

 

Perhaps, all some of us can do is take it in and wonder. And I’m okay with that. I’m okay with not knowing all the details; having that curious spirit and just being in that place, at that time and experiencing it.

Mono Lake is a place like this. A place that has you curious, but also makes you pause.

 

 

I spent less than a day in the vicinity of this wonder. After some time in Yosemite I camped at a spot near South Tufa. I made a point to be at this spot for sunset, capturing the warm glow upon these textured, formations. Then hanging out a bit past sunset until all the colours had faded.

Later in the evening… after a nap… before the full moon appeared I had a small play at some night photos. I’ve not really tried my hand at any astro photography before, so this was a first pass. I did a bit of post on them, to clean up some of the colours. It was fun!
