The most famous Tufa Rock is found around Mono Lake in California. It is a popular destination for photographers. I have not made my way down there yet though I may soon as this type of landscape photography is of interest to me. We have the same type of Tufa rock formations in and around Pyramid Lake. When we have cloudy days, and I have time I try to get out there to photograph the rocks. Last week the clouds and my schedule aligned so I was able to get a few shots that I liked.

The third photo is quite interesting–looks like a view of a man’s head and shoulders from the back. You can see the hair falling over his forehead, and his eye and nose. Looks like he has a big cloak thrown over his shoulders. Would be interesting to see if there are any other figures hiding in these rocks.
There are lots of figures hiding in all of the formations and the Native Americans of the region have legends surrounding many of them. Thanks for visiting and commenting Alli. 🙂
Really cool photos!! I especially like #2; the rock, the clouds, everything’s perfect! 🙂
Thanks so much Calee! 🙂
Very nicely done! I like them all, no way to pick a favorite.
I am happy you liked them all. Thank you. 🙂
Really beautiful! Thanks for sharing 🙂 xox
Thank you Shaman. 🙂
Amazing rock formation! // Maria 🙂
Thank you Maria. 🙂
It is interesting and fascinating how so many rock formations defer from from one part of the country to another. Here in the southwest part of Texas, in what we call the Big Bend area we have formations of white “Tuff” that has been uncovered by centuries of erosion. They make for good photography, also. Loved this post and photographs, Alison.
Thank you so much Bob. As I have said before, Big Bend is on my list and you keep piquing my interest. 🙂
Thank you Ray. 🙂
I spy with my own little eyes so many shapes and sizes of different figures…. Love it.
Thanks seeker. 🙂
I need to see these in real life! These are great shots.
Thank you Dragon. See, I told you that you might like Nevada. 😉
