But seriously, when I was taking in the surrounding terrain and the mood at the site of this famous landmark, I couldn’t help but imagine that there was something off-worldly about it.
And then when I made my photo monotone, well, I could have easily flipped the letters ’n’ and ‘o' in the word mono and titled it Moon Lake instead of the title I ended up giving it.
And this is what happened when I added a red tone. I've given Pantone a27d5d an unofficial nickname: Martian Red.
In the end, I decided to keep it in monotone for its expression as fine art photography because it seemed to encapsulate the essence of everything I've said above. Basically, I'm hoping that it's not only viewed as another landscape, but that it inspires one to get in-touch with their own phenomenal perceptive about it.
In reality, or should I say in this space, it's not an UAP (Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon) hovering over a lake. This photo of the sign at Mono Lake, in Lee Vining, California, confirms that. As you can see, a piece of its volcanic rock is dangling from the sign to give one an opportunity for closely inspecting its texture.
That's all for now regarding this creative travel adventure.
