Blue Hour at Mono Lake

After the "super moon" rise at Mono Lake last month, I stayed to get a blue hour photo of these tufa rock formations, back-lit by the light of the full moon. I entered this and several other photos in the annual calendar contest conducted by the +Mono Lake Committee… fingers crossed!

Sunset at Mono Lake Friday Night

Originally shared by +Jeff Sullivan Photography

The Labor Day holiday weekend crowds are out, but at sunset at Mono Lake on Friday I managed to find a few feet of space without people in it.

Mono Lake / Eastern Sierra Workshop Last Week
As I did most of the summer, I held an Eastern Sierra workshop adjacent to my Bodie workshop last weekend, so people could see more of the area and get some practice with night photography before getting to Bodie on Sunday. Summer evenings are often windy, but that doesn't mean that you can't get good sunset shots!

We actually spent some time up in the Tioga Pass area as well, enjoying afternoon cumulous clouds, sunset, and night photography.
I'll have a couple of fall workshops in early October when we can revisit those areas:

Mono Lake Sunset

The clouds were building last Friday night, so I checked the Mono Lake webcam and decided to head down there for sunset.  There were helicopters and air tankers fighting a wildfire burning in the Bodie Hills.  A rainbow appeared right before sunset, then the sky lit up with color, tinted with the smoke from the fire.  It was a nice, diverse set of conditions which unfolded during golden hour and sunset.
To see more of my Mono Lake photos, here's my album on G+: https://plus.google.com/photos/+JeffreySullivan/albums/5814768526333113153
I'll be leading +Eastern Sierra Nevada Workshops later this year.  Contact me to get notified when the schedule is out: http://www.jeffsullivanphotography.com/blog/eastern-sierra-fall-colors-photo-workshops/

Mirror-like Mono Lake

My Mojave Desert trip last week began with snow. As the storms were clearing up last Sunday morning, our power was out at Topaz Lake. Then when it came back up, our Internet was still down. 

Considering the Mojave trip I had been wanting to take for some time, the partly cloudy forecast which could bring great sunrises and sunsets, and the moonless nights this week if the clouds did clear up, I quickly packed up, got out the door and on the road. About an hour later I was passing Mono Lake, which was offering some spectacular reflections of the last remnants of the storm clouds. It's pretty amazing to be living in ski country yet to be able to drive to the desert in a few hours.

Mono Lake Sunrise

This Mono Lake sunrise image was licensed for use in the +America First Credit Union's 2014 calendar.  I've posted a larger copy from my +Jeff Sullivan Photography page.  I also have it available for prints on +SmugMug, so  I used this post to test SmugMug's current "Share to G+" functionality.  It's a shame that G+ doesn't create larger photo previews with posts shared from external sites.  I think more people would share to G+ if their shared posts weren't at such a disadvantage.

Congrats to +Ron Niebrugge and +Ivan Makarov for also licensing images for this 2014 calendar.

Hopefully I'll be able to lead photography workshops to Mono Lake and other locations in the Eastern Sierra this year, but I have a long, arduous permitting process to complete (separate for each region and federal agency) before I'll have clarity on dates.
