Basalt Formation at Sunrise Left Image, Devil’s Postpile, National Monument, California:
Before the sun rises too high in the sky, the Postpile rests in shadow with subtle, reflected light from the opposite mountain for illumination. The result is a blue, purple hue with the striking contrast of yellow lichen dotting the columns. This image was captured while camping with my daughters who remained in their warm sleeping bags while I enjoyed the frosty morning without my usual assistants.
