I traveled to the White Mountains, leaving Mono Lake at 1:30am and arrived this spot at 3:30am. Never having been there before, at over 10,000 feet altitude (3000+ meters), the sense of being "lost" and not being able to see a thing were somewhat frustrating... Add to that the many hours it took me to get there (keep in mind I started my trip to Mono Lake around 3pm), I just wasn't myself... Lens not stopped properly, sky out of focus, sloppy light "painting", and yet, it's still kind of cool. I don't even know how I spotted this spooky tree, really, but here it is...

Get a poster, t-shirt, mug, mousepad... with this image!
