This is an older photo from about 3 years ago that I brought back up and re-edited. I took this image at the Salton Sea, and I'm so glad I did, because it's no longer there!

    I remember when you first posted this Laurie. I think it was part of a series of pix, but I thought they were b/w. I remember in once case that I alluded to the "Monolith Monsters," a horror flick that was shot in the Salton Sea in the late 50s. Anyway, excellent edit!

    Oh, I've heard of this place.. the Salton Sea.. a place with lots of lore surrounding it.. sort of an abandoned ghost town drowned in the desert... there was even a movie made about it aptly entitled 'The Salton Sea..'

    Sorry, don't mean to spam, but also just wanted to say that I have taken pictures of things that later weren't there anymore either! So, I'm glad I did that too.
