Mono Magenta   Mono Lake, California, USA

Beautiful calcite towers known as tufas grow from the edges of Mono Lake which is incredibly high in mineral deposits through the process of evaporation and salination.  Similar to hoar frost it covers branches twigs and even reeds the difference well it doesn't melt when the sun warms it up.  The atmosphere is other worldly but for all the beautiful backlighting this gentle magenta light of twilight most conjures the surreal.
