Ancient Tower of the Ages by Indigo76 Ancient Tower of the Ages by Indigo76
During a trip to Mono Lake, CA
:iconseptsky: and I got together at 5am to snap some sunrise shots of Mono Lake at a place called "South Tufa Beach".
The lake is approx. 1 million years old and those towers of rock are called 'Tufa' and are made of Limestone.
No fish live in this lake because of how caustic the water is, but there is one life form that thrives there besides the bacteria.
Trillions of Brine Shrimp which feed millions of migrating birds.
there is a very unique eco system at work here.
If you wish to read the blog for more info on this lake, just visit the blog here:
Mono Lake, “An alien world 1 million years in the making”

This is 3 shot HDR with a star lapse composite for the sky.
Shot with my Canon 20D and a Canon 17-40mm f/4.0 Wideangle lens.
