I went for several weeks on a road trip through California and Nevada in September. The Mono Lake area is among my favorite places to visit.
Here is an image that I took in the Bodie Hills en route to Bodie, the picturesque ghost town in Mono County. This picture was taken in the afternoon.
I am happy with this image, because it shows off the harsh but beautiful landscape in a playful composition. Light and shadows, the clouds, and the color range capture the essence of this high desert landscape.
