During my recent time spent in Fallon, NV, I had occasion to meet up with my dad for a ski trip to Tahoe and spend some time making turns at Kirkwood. The snow was icy and a bit difficult, but it was a great time. On the way back, we decided to make a long detour to the south to see Mono Lake... one of the sights in California that I've always wanted to visit. Our timing wasn't ideal for viewing the tuffs with optimal light (we got there sometime in the afternoon) but we were there and I had a polarizer to help make the sky that dramatic shade of blue. The air was incredibly clear and cold and the snow on the surrounding mountains and hills really gave a great contrast to the lake and the odd volcanic formations. Some time I would like to get back for the golden hour, but I'm happy about my current results!
