I normally shoot Mono Lake during the winter months, when there are almost no people to photobomb extended shots, or other photographers to crowd. But conditions looked promising at the end of June, with the possibility of a flamboyant sunset and sunrise, and a clear night of stars before the moon rose and washed out the sky. Sunset and sunrise were beautiful, though shooting locations and sky conditions did not line up quite as well as hoped. And at night, cloud cover lingered well into early dawn, enough to impede star visibility, but not enough to prevent the moon from washing out the sky. Still, there were times when the night was beautiful. This image, Latteo, was one of them. Light was first recorded at 2:40am. The Milky Way's galactic core was on the other side of the sky, but that does not detract from this piece. Bridgeport's city lights, about 20 miles away, faintly illuminated the clouds, but not enough to be seen by the naked eye. The outcome is a dreamy, fantasy view of Mono Lake's South Tufa Tower at night.
Latteo ia available in both Radiant and Claritas media. As with all our artwork, we offer this piece in the medium or media we feel is best suited for its emotional connection. We generally find that most colors and details are best conveyed through our Radiant finish. It's more vivid and detailed than either acrylic or metal. We also offer this piece in Claritas, our acrylic block format sized 6x8. It is ideally suited for the desktop, kitchen window, bathroom counter, or mantle.
