Many of the tufa towers at Mono Lake have names given to them, such as the Shipwreck, and I was wondering if this giant one was given a name as well. If not, I'll refer to it as Albert.

By the time I shot this, most everyone who was at the lake for the sunset had already gone home, and so I got to experience this event almost completely alone.

There is a solitude that exists in the desert which seems to be a of a unique quality all it's own. I can still smell the sage and brush and the lake itself right now even though I've been back home from this trip for close to two weeks.
