    Nature when left alone is absolutely stunning!

    Agreed — nice lake. There’s an odd quality about his photography, very painterly. An earlier one featured on this site was like a 19th century landscape. Have a look. https://chanceofrain.com/2009/09/western-eye/ … But this one reminds me of the paintings of August Vincent Tack found in the Phillips Collection. Don’t know why, so checked the collection. The impression holds.

    I am not in Turner’s class, but did put a Mono Lake Photo on my personal web site.

    Very nice, Wes. I particularly like the tufa pinnacles.
