Wednesdays Image of the Week - Fossil. Taken this past summer in Switzerland this view from the top of Mt. Pilatus overlooks the Swiss Alps. The trip to the top can be made by aerial gondola or the worlds steepest cogwheel train. We took the gondola on the way up and the cogwheel train to get down. There's a hotel and visitor center with restaurants and gift shops but the best part is obviously the views and trails you can walk once you are there.

Mondays Image of the Week - Channels. There are 2 main channels that run through parts of Huntington Beach starting at the coast and working there way several miles inland. They are basically flood channels for storms, high tides and tsunamis. One is the Huntington Beach Channel and the other is the Talbert Channel. I live near both of them and have passed them walking and driving hundreds if not thousands of times. I've always thought there was something interesting about them even though they are not particularly attractive. So I've started a series of photographs to explore their "interesting" qualities. Check out the California Gallery to see more from this series.

Also, don't forget there are only a couple days left to take advantage of the ScaneLife Bday celebration

Todays image is of a small landscape painting I did titled - Sunrise over Sandbar, Bolsa Chica. This small oil on canvas is 6"x8" and was started as a limited palette study of Sap Green ( a warm green ) and Viridian Green ( a cool green ) with Ivory Black and Titanium White. This combination allowed me to work with both value and temperature on this painting while remaining monotone.
