Mono Lake (This Week in Water, Kinda' Sorta') Pt. 3

More photographs from my visit to that picturesque, high desert oasis by the Inyo National Forest called Mono Lake for you to enjoy. There is just so much happening in each shot, and the character and color of the water seems to change by the moment.

But first, true story: the other night I was scrolling through the movie channels on my electric teevee machine, and my eye alighted on the opening of Clint Eastwood's 'High Plains Drifter', and I was like "Wha?" And sure shootin', it was filmed almost entirely at Mono Lake. Fortuity? Serendipity? Who knows. Naturally, I couldn't NOT watch.

This is a great series, Jim H. Makes me really miss the West, it's been a long time.

this is interesting, i agree

speaking of where things were filmed, last night (after the candidates' debate - the brawl in brooklyn, i heard it called) i watched on HBO the movie Max - about a war dog that came to live with the bereaved family of his former handler - thomas haden church plays the papa - i really liked it, actually

notionally, it took place in texas, but there are a lot of outdoor scenes that look very green - in the credits at the end i saw that filming was in north carolina - scenery very similar to that in hunger games
