Lower Mississippian Tin Mountain Limestone

Inyo County, California

A spirifer-type brachiopod from the Lower Mississippian Tin Mountain Limestone. From the Tin Mountain locality near Towne Pass before the paleontologically rich exposures on public lands there were assimilated into the expanded borders of Death Valley National Park; originally photographed with a Minolta 35mm camera, then digitally remastered and eventually edited and processed with photoshop (adding the black background, for one).
