After all the Patagonia shots these last few weeks following the fall colors down there, I was glad to have such an unusual capture.
Admittedly there was more than a small amount of post-production to get the sky and atmosphere in back of this image, something I am generally more reserved with, but here I really felt the rare scene could benefit from a few extra touches, just to be forthcoming.
Everything else in the scene comes from a single exposure at f/20.

A unique view of the tufa formations of Mono Lake, California under stormy skies at sunset. Looks best on black.
Since the water level here has dropped in the past couple of years, compositions incorporating water or reflections are much harder to come by. This left me looking for a frame for these strange towers, and this was what found. I thought the curling wave formation of the foreground, along with the stormy skies, looked pretty SPOOKY.
This image is comprised of several stacked exposures for depth of field at f/22 for the foreground frame (it was mere inches from my lens), one for the main formations at f/16, and one at f/8 for the sky.

This is from Patagonia. Cerro Grande peak with lenticular wave clouds and blowing snow. A Condor rides the wind free from it all.
