The Weekly Postcard: Winter in Mono Lake

 

       Last night, as I was getting ready to write an article for The Weekly Postcard, I realized this series turned into something very different from what was initially intended.  The Weekly Postcard was started a little over a year ago, as a series of snapshots featuring some of my favorite places in the world. In the beginning this was more about photography than the places themselves, but in time the short stories became longer and longer, eventually turning into regular posts.  

       So today, reminiscing about the initial Weekly Postcard series, I’ll present you just one single shot. This particular picture was was taken at Mono Lake –a large, shallow saline soda lake in Mono County, California. Mono Lake is an immense inland sea, spreading over 70 square-miles. The lake is one of the oldest ones in the northern hemisphere and was formed some 800,000 years ago. In winter, its shimmering blue waters reflect the snow-capped Sierra Nevada mountains creating a picture-perfect scenery.

Have you ever visited this area?

  1. I’ve never been to Mono Lake but I have seen photos – but never from winter before. What a great shot!

    • California has some of the most beautiful scenery in the world, Fairly. You should definitely venture outside the large cities.

  3. I also noticed The Weekly Postcard slowly changing over the weeks, but I must admit, I like it better like this 🙂 I love the picture, definitely one to be looking at when there are 35 degrees Celsius outside 😉

    • Thank you, Rhonda. You’ve probably never seen Mono Lake is you don’t remember it. It’s something you’d never forget.

  4. Anda, this is kind of crazy. I visited Mono Lake today (I am in Bishop right now). The lake is surreal. We visited the South Tufa Reserve and that was mind blowing. I felt like in another planet.
