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.

Leonard Knight’s Salvation Mountain, located just outside Niland. Photos don’t do it justice.
Looking southwest, a dry, dusty landscape.
- 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!

We took a road trip within our road trip to check out the Salton Sea. It was an eleven hour drive door to door. A long day but totally worth it!
A bunch of photographers have done great work in this area. Check out Aaron Huey’s photos on Instagram: argonautphoto and newyorkerphoto Also, his web site: www.aaronhuey.com
I’d love to go back and spend some time photographing.
- Alice, trying to frame a alien landscape.
Abandoned building along the edge of the sea.
A more friendly landscape. More photos coming in the following blog post!

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.
Uplift and erosion. There are granite rock formations of all shapes and sizes scattered throughout the park.

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.
