Mono Lake Tufa with reflected sunset light 111012-173124-MK4-2108

On my way to the lake shore to set up for the anticipated moonrise, this scene stopped me in my tracks. The evening sunlight briefly shone into this group of tufas, where it bounced from spire to spire, creating this exquisite internal glow through the portals. Even the bright swag of leaves on the left owed its brilliance to transmitted, rather than directly reflected light.
