Mono Lake in California by Jim Shoemaker

"Mono Lake, California, is one of my favorite places to photograph in winter," pro photographer Jim Shoemaker says. "The tourists are gone and often I have the place to myself." The California resident captured this serene scene early one morning. Shoemaker used a Canon 5D Mark II with a 16-35mm lens, a tripod and a graduated neutral density filter.
