Such a nice contrast between the blues and the limestone "sculpture". It really stands out. Beautiful colors and all!
Thanks. It really was an ideal day for taking pictures.
Tufa is another NAME for white limestone? I wonder what they mined for in that area. I guess lime is used in cement. They have a gypsum plant right outside Las Vegas. -Larry
Thanks. As far as I know, both tufa and limestone are essentially calcium carbonate rocks, but the way they form is different.
In Bodie northwest of Mono Lake there were profitable gold and silver mines in the late 19th century. Cheers, Guido
This photo is excellent! Very clear, striking contrast! What a beautiful place.
Thanks. You should visit that area one day. It really is beautiful. Cheers.
