Testing a new material finish, coated full-color sandstone. Looks so slick and oily! It's actually all dry, very smooth, much more resistant and glossy. Bacon looks like a greasy, infinite heart attack.

For now, only the non-coated versions of these are available in my shop, the material is still in a pilot program and not available to the public.

My favorite pic from last weekend's trip, two Great Blue Herons (Ardea herodias) landing in their nest for the night. Taken at Obsidian Butte, Salton Sea. I snapped a ton of other variations of this pic, with other birds flying around, and changing cloud formations, but the one of the heron landing was just too awesome.

That was Saturday. On Sunday we stopped by the same spot but the heron saw me and flew off scared. Took wide landscape pics instead on that day.

If you don't have a gridded notepad with a total mess of squiggly-squaredy drawings on it, you are not playing The Witness properly.

"It was never a fair fight between fundamentalist Christianity and D&D. One was a dangerous system full of dark mysticism and threats to warp a young mind beyond repair, and the other was a tabletop RPG." - shadowling (in the comments of the article)

Timothy and I have been playing The Witness on PS4 and so far it's been an awesome experience. Gorgeous visuals, very clever metaphors and symbolism, intimidating puzzles. It has such an odd mix of science, religion and philosophy. When you are suddenly confronted by James Burke in the middle of a videogame, you know it's not just your typical interactive experience.

Last pic from Salton Sea. I tried a long-ish exposure to soften the water, 2.5 seconds. I'd like to try this again with a more interesting subject in the foreground, I couldn't find anything very dynamic for it.

And that's it for the Salton Sea. Need a new roadtrip soon.

Western burrowing Owl (Athene cunicularia), protecting his home at Mullet Island. I took a lot of pics of this owl but he always had an annoying feather sticking out of his chest. In this pic, the feather is there, casting a shadow, but at least you can't see it sticking out.

A speckled pattern of Northern Shovelers (Anas clypeata). It was just random noise, so I focused on getting one duck moving while the others were at rest. I liked that they all kept their beaks in their backs too, except for the one idiot male who didn't get the memo on the right side of the pic.

Misty Mountain or Mystic Mountain? Either way, it's just about 2 feet high, and muddy. Moist Mound is more like it, but not as catchy. I liked this shot for the simplicity, it just feels like a large, foggy landscape.

#Zootopia wrap party with my husband, in the super fancy room with the special guests and such.

What a great film guys, it is relevant, emotional, meaningful and I think will actually make a good change in a ton of people, it will reach out so far with a positive message. Super proud to have worked on it.

Testing a new material finish, coated full-color sandstone. Looks so slick and oily! It's actually all dry, very smooth, much more resistant and glossy. Bacon looks like a greasy, infinite heart attack.

For now, only the non-coated versions of these are available in my shop, the material is still in a pilot program and not available to the public.

Yesterday's sunset at Obsidian Butte, with 329 birds. I counted the birds in the full-res picture, 329 are visible, some other noise in the far distance could be more birds, could just be noise. The main flock of cormorants has 86 visible birds (many more were out of the frame).

This large rocky area on the shore of the Salton Sea is covered in huge boulders of Dragon Glass™. Some shiny and exposed, most covered in dried salt and bird droppings, like the one pictured.

I took many variations of this same shot, all in 3 exposures for HDR, but ended up using a single exposure since HDR doesn't do well with water or fast-moving birds.

Fish scales, feathers, barnacles, mud, bird shit, obsidian shards, fishy rotten water. Glad we wore the boots today.

American Avocet (Recurvirostra americana) with a mud volcano erupting behind. I was trying really hard to get pics with the mud explosions and the bird, but it was too hard to get the right pose, perfect focus, and the timed explosions all in one place. This is the best I got, it's not clear that the background is a splatter of flying mud unless you know what you are looking at already.

We might be going back to the same place this weekend, I'll try again.

Cormorant Graveyard. Lens flare from the setting sun lined up perfectly. Not entirely happy with the picture, too much distortion on the top with the wide lens, and there's an odd lack of balance with the water on the right and all the diagonals, but whatevs.

The sun sets behind the skull of a Double-crested Cormorant (Phalacrocorax auritus), on Mullet Island. I didn't even notice the spiderwebs until I got home and opened the picture.

The whole area of abandoned cormorant nests was filled with bones, most of them from cormorants, but also from pelicans, seagulls, and other animals.

Super smooth mud bubble about to burst. I liked the miniature ridges and landscape that formed in this area, had to crop out the distant background to make it more isolated.

Consuela is a monster, she tore apart one of our prettiest air plants, and swallowed the pieces. Damn Roomba. A possible future of quadcopter Roombas scares me.

A flock of Ring-billed Gulls (Larus delawarensis), right next to the mud volcano area by the Salton Sea. There were so many more than then ones in this pic, but if I used a wider lens they turned so tiny you couldn't see them anymore.

They were sharing the pond with some American Coots (Fulica americana), you can see a few around the water in the photo.

Weird, I've been listed as the official animator for an EP + Music Video Kickstarter project from an indie artist. Wouldn't it have been nice if he had asked before, maybe send an email or something?
