Assemblages. These are collections of images. Usually taken on the same day and same place, or an extended place.
29 imagesThis is a rainwater runoff arroyo. Man-made. They dumped very large sharp edged boulders into it to keep hikers and pets out. It works. It also had the secondary effect of making it a perfect place for rattlesnakes. It is located at the end of a large rainwater arroyo system connected with large tunnels. In one of the times of imbalance Libbi and I walked to the edge and she promptly wanted me to carry her. When I was able to place the strong smell I picked her up, watched my feet and retraced our footsteps out of the area, keeping my eye out for rattlesnakes. These images were taken after a series of good rains.
154 imagesThis is an area next to one that is currently owned by the US Military. It is a beautiful area. These were taken one afternoon after rains the previous days. There is currently a bill HR 4268 seeking National Monument Status for Castner Range. The gallery is presented by the date/time that the image was taken. that gives the effect of showing my walk through the area even if some of the images look similar they are not the same image.
59 imagesDesert Rain. The smells are pungent and earthy. The air is fresh and clean.
