At Mono Lake Visitor's Center

I remember the "Save Mono Lake" bumper stickers from the '70s, when the water coming into the lake was being diverted to LA. I believe the lake is in a 'stable' condition now. It's a very popular spot for photographers, and usually it is best at dawn and dusk for picture taking. The visitors add a bit of interest to this mid-morning shot. Mono Lake is on of favorite shooting spots for nature photographer George Lepp.

Great picture! I like so much this kind of "casual"shot with nature scenery and people, it's so cool!
I need to learn more about photography with you dear friend!And maybe some day I can be able to attend some workshop or even photography classes like you did!
Have a fabulous weekend and enjoy your family moment!

I've seen George Lepp's work and it is phenomenal. He's the one who did a workshop you attended, right?

And I can see why this is a favorite spot for photographers and photobloggers!

I especially like the soft, muted colors.

That's a beautiful, relaxing painting in the background. How's the weather at Convict Lake today?

What amazing colors. Another place I missed, but I do remember the bumper stickers. I just may have to go back on vacation.

I can understand why this is a favorite spot for photographers — the view is magnificent!

The colours in this are beautiful - it looks like a 1950's watercolour illustration.
