Saving Mono Lake

Uploaded: February 27, 2013


Created 5 million years ago. Water was diverted in 1941 from this lake to make Los Angeles what it is today. Almost killing a complete ecosystem, diversion stopped in 1994. Saved, it is slowly recovering. ISO 100, f/11, 1/60 sec, 24-70L @ 24 mm. ND + CIR-PL filters.

BetterPhoto Websites: If you see an orange website link directly under the photographer's name, it's totally okay. It's not spam. The reason: BetterPhoto is the one that offers these personal photography websites. We are supporting our clients with those links.

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.

I hear, I forget.
I see, I remember.
I do, I understand.
