Dead Pelican  
Every once in a while you come across something unexpected on the trails. Dark clouds loomed in the east, and the Sierra in the west was behind a veil of fog and rain. Mono Lake was not blue, or green or turquoise like it is on an ordinary day. There was an ominous calm. The storm had arrived.

South Beach, Mono Lake.

B/W is surreal!

The black-and-white has made a kind of surreal M C Escher woodcut of the image...I am going to post my pedestrian shot (by the way, I didn't have the heart to take the dead face, somehow) and give the link to this post, where people can see what CAN be done with the photographs, that lifts images from the mere level of documentation, to art.

This time, Yathin, your words are very poetic, too. Concise, and so evocative. Perhaps it helped that I was there...but even if I had not been, I think I would have been moved by this post.

The b&w photo looked just a painting.

OMG! So sad to see the bird dead and lying there.

Good picture, though! How did you get the concave mirror view? (Did I ask you this before too? Feels like deja vu!)

Yeah, the picture is from a fish-eye lens, so it gets that 180 degree field of view.

Yep..I DID ask you this before. LOL! Thanks for explaining again! :)
