This is a salt mining area in Las Salinas, Dominican Republic. The place had an empty, post apocalyptic feel that I kind of liked. I made this photo in Fall 2010 and recently did a finished print and hand colored it.

Alice and I were the only visitors this afternoon. We wandered and snapped photos, taking it all in. It's an amazing    scene. Worth a visit if you're in the area!

Joshua Tree

The story goes, Mormon pioneers thought the limbs of the Joshua Tree looked like the outstretched arms of Joshua leading them to the promised land. That's how the tree got it's name.

I posted a similar scene on November 9, 2013. That photo was made with a digital camera. This one with a Holga and black and white film. I applied a bit of color with Marshall's oil paints and pencils. Montreal along the Saint-Lawrence River.
