An infinite view to the eastern Sierra Nevada mountains where successive contrails moved laterally every few minutes in their airmass over a fixed road.California ContrailsOn the way to Mono Lake, California, the view along Highway 120 presents a series of compositional leading lines formed by aircraft flying the same jet route. The subsequent rows develop as the air mass containing the contrails moves perpendicular to the flight path before the next aircraft proceeds along the same track several minutes later.

Mono Lake is an endorheic basin which means its water has no where to drain. Since the water is trapped it’s reaches a high level of salinity. The lake also has a high-level of carbonates which creates intricate Tufa Towers of calcite which arise from springs at the bottom of the lake. This gallery also shares prints from California State Route 120 which leads to Mono Lake which highlights the amazing open skies of the Eastern Sierras.
