Weekly Photo Challenge: Transmogrify


I decided that my recent trip to the Eastern Sierras would provide good material for this week’s challenge “transmogrify”.    I chose this photo from the Trona Pinnacles for the challenge because of  two factors.  The first  is that the pinnacles are a drastic and out of this world change from the unappealing town nearby.  That is one of the reasons that it has been chosen for many hollywood films, from sci-fi features to “Top Gun”.  The second reason is that the pinnacles become even more impressive during changes in lighting such as sunrise and sunset.  This photo was taken just at sunset before the stars and the milky way made their appearance.  The transition of colors in the sky and the shadows of the pinnacles was rapid and dramatic.  Well worth  the stopover……

  1. Beautiful photo! The landscape reminds me of science fiction movies and TV, when the humans land on a barren planet.

    • Thanks Inger – It is really an unusual place – in the middle of a complete desert landscape.
