    Artist Statement

    "Mono Lake has always been one of my stops when photographing the Sierra Nevada east slope. On this trip I decided to photograph the sunset facing east hoping the western setting sun would illuminate the great cloud formations in the east. That did not happen because the heavy thick clouds covering the setting sun in the west blocked the light. I gave up and as I was heading west to return to the vehicle the clouds on the west briefly opened up and there was the photograph. I was only able to get a few bracketed shots but that was enough to capture the moment and scene I will always remember."
