Prometheus

Sunset at Mono Lake, California.

Sand tufa formations at Mono Lake in California.
You can't tell from the picture but these fragile structures are only inches tall and get their shape from winds stripping away their sandy coverings. I was lying down, crawling or sitting in order to get different handheld shots with low camera angle and only centimeters away with the sun setting behind them.
This is 3 shots blended together for focus. At first I was a little hesitant about blown-out sun but then it grew on me.
