    No, the whole trip was 3 weeks, went something like this : LA - Channel Islands - Death Valley - Las Vegas - Grand Canyon - Mojave National Park - Joshua Tree National Park - San Diego.

    I wasn't in any of the parks for more than one day sadly, tried to do as many trails as I could on each occasion though :)

    I too enjoyed the narrative with the image. My mind wants to see more of the surroundings to give me more context. Make this image part of a series and and that would cover all the bases! Nicely seen.

    Thanks. Sometimes it's hard for me to tell the difference- Many of the things I shoot I tend to take for granted that everybody knows about. When I don't, everybody seems to. It can get weird.

    Sounds like it was fun. I've become so bound by the area. I really like it though. The Channel Islands--I'd really like to visit there. Sometimes it is nice getting out of here and going to see the ocean for a few days (Once a year at least).

    The story really made this shot... for a second there, I was wondering what was in the hole... then I realized it was just water. Almost looked like some kind of magical rock or something. Cool :)

    Thank you very much!

    Thanks. The water was swirling very slowly with a little leaf in it. I wish I had maybe a 9 stop neutral density filter.

    Very nice.
    We have a place like that about 15 miles from our house .It was an Olone indian camp that has been set up as park. Took a few shots but nothing like the quality of yours.
    This has inspired me to go back and try again. Once again wonderful storie and picture
