Caption: Natural calcium deposits known as tufa towers, photographed on the shore of Mono Lake, an inland sea in the desert of eastern California. Most of the water which used to flow into the lake is now being diverted and piped to Los Angeles, 300 miles (480 km) away. The tufa towers, formed on the lake floor, have become exposed as the water level has fallen.
