Mono Lake Towers


Tufa around the lake shore
Mono Lake, California — October 2016

Ilford Pan F Plus + T-MAX RS (stock) 4 minutes

These are tufa columns, a type of limestone, from ancient hot springs forming within a saline lake — not to be confused with volcanic tuff (which can also be called tufa).  These structures can be found all around and in Mono Lake… even hundreds of feet above the current lake levels.

The whole Mono Lake area is very cool to visit and spend most of a week exploring.
