New image for the new year!

Here’s my first image for the new year “This Old House” taken  in Bishop, California.  I was told this particular house is the oldest in the area.  Being in the eastern sierras in winter is pretty awesome, not to mention very cold. I had a few great mornings and evenings and I can’t wait to go back!

#SaveOurSeas

Chasing the sun

For those who live in Southern California we all are familiar with the Salton Sea. For those who live in the Imperial Valley area, are very familiar with the smell of the Salton Sea.

The sea is slowly evaporating each year, leaving behind a salinity of 4.0 and increasing. It’s more salty than our oceans and the only fish that survive there are tilapia and even those are dying off. The sea is not only home to the tilapia, but it’s also home to over 380 species of birds that migrate during the seasons.

We can’t afford to lose this place that many birds and fish call home. It would be a disaster if that would ever happen. So what’s being done to save our sea? Lots of talk and no action I’m afraid. Sure, there have been plans drawn up to restore the sea, but it would take over 25 years to complete and by that time the sea would be gone.

What can we do? Well, we can bring more attention to this cause and make a difference. If the ALS foundation can raise money by getting celebrities to do the bucket challenge why can’t friends of the Salton Sea. We can start the #SaltonSeaChallenge and get people to pour huge amounts of salt into a bucket along with water and dump it on them, crazy?

One person who is making a difference is Randy Brown. He has this crazy idea of walking the entire distance of the sea, which is 116 miles in 120 degree heat next year. Now that’s dedication!

If you’re interested in supporting this crazy adventure (and you should be) please check out his site and make a donation to the cause.  http://www.saltonseawalk.com

We all have to start somewhere!

Salvation Mountain

salcolor

 

This was my first time at this place and it did not disappoint. I came here earlier in the day to check it out not even thinking of capturing the stars because it was really cloudy that day. I’m so glad I did come back later that evening. I had the Mountain all to myself along with the caretaker who watches over it. I really think I was fortunate to capture something magical.

 

Leonard Knight dedicated 27 years of his life creating this work of art until he passed away earlier this year in February. He lived in the back of a truck with no running water or electricity. I don’t think you have to be religious at all to get the message of love. I dedicated this image in memory of Mr. Knight.

Salvation Mountain

 

There are 10 images taken at 30 Sec exposure, F/2.8, at ISO 3200 stitched together in Photoshop to create this pano over Salvation Mountain. The lights that you see in the background are from the town of El Centro, Ca

Salvation Mountain is located near the town of Niland just 2 miles east of hwy111 along the Salton Sea. I encourage all to come and visit this special place.
