Still waiting for the return of my camera, so I'm continuing to dig into the "vault" for some old photos that I haven't shared yet. Remember that old abandoned house on Highway 395 that I've photographed before? This structure here is actually on the same land, right next to the other house, except it's in a little worse shape than the one you've seen. I'm fascinated by these abandoned houses, and would be eager to hear their stories if they could talk.

I've loved this old barn for years. And I've often seen a lone hawk perched on top of it as I pass by. On this particular day, there were two! Perched side by side, a lovely silhouette against the back drop. I had my camera with me, so I parked the car and got into position. And right as I did they both decided to fly off. I'm still really happy with how the photo turned out, but am admittedly pretty bummed that I wasn't able to photograph them pre-flight. And I have a sneaking suspicion that it'll continue to bother me until I finally get the opportunity again.

Digging through some old photos from my visit to Death Valley, I stumbled upon this one that I hadn't shared yet. If you've been to Death Valley, you'll instantly recognize this location. For those that haven't, this site is known as "Artists Palette," a hillside in which a rainbow effect is created by volcanic deposits rich in metals. It's an amazing splash of color amongst a relatively monochromatic landscape.
