I'm curious if that is a stock photo of Salton Sea or if you drove all the way down there just for the blog.

I have a quick question: how often do you take photos? Obviously it's every day or darned close.

Also, how many photos do you take in a day on average?

Queen- Since I took Monday and Tuesday off, I drove around the desert for the past 5 days taking all sorts of photos that catch my eye. Then each day I create a story out of the photos I have not used. So for this week, I didn't take any new photos Wednesday Thursday or Friday...I just have lots of material to work with.

Nice wind farm! I saw lots of them in West Texas when I did a road trip to New Mexico last spring. While they're not particularly attractive, there's something hypnotic about all those blades slowly turning, and knowing that they're making light bulbs come on in some distant town.

Nice photos! The ones of the Salton Sea caught my eye since I noticed our local arthouse movie theatre is showing "Plagues and Pleasures on the Salton Sea."

Great photos Rick, especially the one showing the sea. Palm Springs is such a lovely place. You are so lucky to live there
