This was taken over the El Paso Mountains.  The structures are the old “complex” of cabins that belonged to the late Tonie Evelyn Seger, and William “Burro” Schmidt.  Looking past the cabins, some parked vehicles can be seen.  The vehicles are parked at the entrance to Burro Schmidt’s Tunnel, which is a popular attraction for off-road “tourists.”

Droning Over The San Bernardino Mountains…

“Winter” in southern California usually results in greener mountains.  Here, my DJI Phantom 4 captured some video of the greenery in the San Bernardino Mountains.

Drone Photograph: Calico Mountains…

Another folded rock formation in the Calico Mountains.  This image was taken during a visit in November, 2017.  DJI Phantom 4.  1/2500th sec. F/2.8.  ISO 100.

Trail To Red Rock…

…State Park, that is.

Notice how the trail shown in this image seems to disappear into the reddish rock formations in the distance.  Those rock formations are located within Red Rock State Park.  This  trail is one of many that snake through the El Paso Mountain Range.

The Sierra Nevada Mountains can be seen in the background.

Dark Canyon…In Black and White…

I really enjoy black and white photography.  Ok, my DJI Phantom 4 can’t take photos in black and white, so I have to convert the images to black and white in “post-production.”

Even so, the contrast between light and shadow fascinates me, and is dramatically illustrated in this photo that was taken in November, 2017 in the Calico Mountains.
