Mono Lake Sunrise

Mono Lake is a great location to photograph sunrise. It was one of those mornings where the light went crazy. Over in Lee Vining it was dark and raining but I took a chance and drove out the Mono Lake for sunrise. The sky that morning the sky blew up with color as I was attempting to shoot the tufas with the myriad of photographs all around. After the initial sunrise a rainbow appeared over the entire Mono Lake and tufas. I scrambled to find a different shot with the tufas and the rainbow. This was the best sunrise I've experienced at Mono Lake. Normally I get disappointed!
