Sunset over Mono

Sunset at Mono Lake

With the frequent occurrence of late-afternoon storms east of the Sierra Nevada this summer, it’s been an unusually good year for colorful clouds at sunset in the western Great Basin. These are from one evening during a quick visit to Mono County a week ago—views are from the Mono Basin National Forest Scenic Area Visitor Center in Lee Vining.

    I look forward to the pictures every month. Sometimes they are interesting from a technique perspective, sometimes an interesting natural phenomenon, beautiful plants, but what ever the subject they are well worth spending a few minutes or longer to examine them. Thanks
