Trona Pinnacles

After an evening of being lulled to sleep by a 40 mile an  hour windstorm the dawn broke clear and still.

What a relief. I am not sure if I even slept! The tent was snapping loudly and pushing hard on one side and then the other. There was no shelter from the winds other then the SUV which we put directly upwind... It didn't help.

I had tried to catch this part of the formation in the sunset but the light went away mid-way through the exposure sequence. 

Since I was up before dawn I was able to get in a good position to capture the first light as it delicately brushed the landscape.
