I made this in the afternoon yesterday under some pretty amazing conditions. It was brisk with high clouds and the sun poking through every once in a while. I really wanted to capture the deepness of the mountains, both in form and in color. 


  1. you captured the sense of that afternoon - beautiful - great project, Santa Barbara spirit shines thru your work-

    - the turpentine lady

  2. I can smell it from here! Thanks a lot, although I want another shot at it. I am hoping for similar conditions next Thursday. See you then.
