A jewel in the middle of the mountains of High Sierra and Yosemite national park in California.
I really don’t know where to start but I think I’ll start with the inevitable… the landscape. Most of you would know that I’m very specific with the background of my photos or let’s say - location. I love architecture so I tend to pick buildings that I find interesting. I also love the desert so every time I come to California I tend to take a lot of photoshoots in here. Now… sometimes you find something unexpected on your way and you just have to go for it.
I had read about Mono Lake and we had it on our road trip plan but what I didn’t know is that seeing it live would be sooooooooo much better than the photos I had seen online. This place is an absolute jewel and I can assure you anything I can tell you here won’t prepare you for what it actually is so if you happen to have the opportunity go visit.
This is a shallow saline soda lake with numerous tufa towers emerging from the water and a small island in the middle. There is no fish in the lake but I can tell you I have never seen so many butterflies as I have seen here. It’s truly magical.
Now about my outfit… this dress is one of my favourite pieces I bought at COS this season. I cannot tell you how many times people have stopped me in the streets to ask me where I got it so I made sure to leave you the link here. I also need to mention this amazing sunglasses I just got at Acne. Square frame with yellow lenses. You know what “they” say about yellow lenses right? Well, they put you in a good mood so to say. They help you focus and reduce fatigue in more technical words. I felt like in a constant movie scene (due to the colors you get through) driving with them through desert and mountains. So good!
