Pirate Ship

Three visits to Mono Lake resulted in three very different images. The colours around the lake change all the time and I’d previously had a more purple looking image, a gorgeous blue image and today the light went a little flat with a patchy cloudy sky obscuring the sunshine.

I therefore opted to go for a longer exposure and to concentrate on one of the tufa rock formations out in the bay. Looking like a submarine, I loved the shapes in the outcrop of rock and the darkening clouds forming overhead.

It was interesting that, although I’d referred to the outcrop of rock as a submarine, right at the end of the shoot a local gentleman came up to me and referred to the rock as the Pirate Ship. After further discussion, it would seem that I was completely wrong and the outcrop has an official name and I therefore guess that I ought to name this image thus.

With the rain about to fall, this was one of the last images that I would capture at this truly amazing lake.

The above image is produced in the regular 4:3 aspect ratio.  However it can be cropped to a 2:1 ratio and printed on either A4 or A3 paper, this profile is available in several configurations to meet your needs.  This ratio gives a more panoramic feel to the image as can be seen here.
