Description Just off of highway 395, a few miles towards Mono Lake on a small dirt road, a storm quickly formed to the south of the lake. Mono Lake is a volcanic lake full of minerals. Small shrimp grow in the lake, and it is a very important part of seagulls migratory lives.
Mono Lake is the main source of water for Los Angeles, CA. The city acquired the rights to channel the water to the city through the second Los Angeles Aqueduct in the 1970's.

Nate Siggard, Los Angeles Member Since February 2007 Artist Statement I'm an artist and designer in Los Angeles, California. I'd almost always rather be in the mountains or on the highway taking photos of the most beautiful places on Earth. I began taking photos when the first Nikon D100 was released, and I was hooked. Since then I have taken about 50,000 photos on my quest to document the world around me.
I primarily shoot HDR (High Dynamic Range) landscape photography and am beginning to shoot models. My process involves creating the HDR image by combining three bracketed photos into a single 32 bit picture. The picture is then tone-mapped to compress all the available light and color into an editable photo that is color corrected in Photoshop and adjusted in Lightroom.
I wrote an e-book to teach others how to make their own HDR photos. You can find out more about it by going to http://HowToTakeHDRPhotos.com and use the discount code: Imagekind for 50% off the sales price!
