I went there a couple of years ago in the Fall to photograph the surrounding area with some friends. This morning I got up early, before sunrise, and stumbled down to the shore where I found a large group of photographers waiting to get some photos of the tufas at just the right light. It was interesting to listen to "picture-geeks" talk about techniques for capturing the light and shadows in this particular place. Apparently I was the only "non-Nikon" user in the area.
I waited for what seemed hours for the sun to rise and I captured this shot. I'm pleased with the result. I hope you enjoy it as well.
