Pictures from photo gallery: "Mono Lake Tufa SNR"

The sharp spires and rough surface of the rock formations or tufa towers on Mono Lake are a stark contrast against the smooth looking, snow covered mountains of the Sierra Nevada.

It is hard to see where these formations of limestone meet the still water of the lake as their reflections look like a continuation of themselves.

Their surface have the appearance of a melted candle dripping wax over its sides. Meanwhile the snow which covers the Sierra Nevada mountains in the background makes them appear smooth and undulating.
