This is a movie set in Lancaster CA that I stumbled upon while making flower deliveries. I was actually allowed inside to shoot and have spent several days there photographing it and the hotel and gas station.It was built to film Eye of the Storm, Torque and lots of movies, music videos,etc. This is the location where the new Rob Zombie film "The Devil's Rejects" was filmed...:-)

Looks like you have a great fan club going already. Way to go. THis is one of my favorites of your many beautiful images. I love the perspective the colors and that blue sky and clouds just top it all off.

well who do we have here! I didn't know you have joined BP, Jill! What a pleasant surprise!

But, it is NO surprise at all that you won with this shot! Such vibrant colors, and as Cora said, only you can make the desert so cheerful and inviting. Terrific work, and definitely well deserved win!!! Woo-hoo!!!

Congratulations Jill !! You have a way of bringing out the true beauty of this area. I live in Palmdale and even though I can see it through my eyes, I have a hard time putting it into a picture for others to see. Terrific job.

Sorry I hadn't commented on this yet. I guess I saw it on your website and commented there. I just love this shot, and keep coming back to look at it. Wonderful, and congratulations, Jill.

A belated CONGRATULATIONS! to you, Jill, for your well-earned win on this beautiful scene (oh, those clouds), and for the many finalists you've received since last summer.
The variety - and quality - of photos in your gallery make it a real joy to drop in and wander through.

Jill,

did you use a filter to get that great sky color?

Been there many times but never photographed it. I've collected scorpions there at Piute Butte next to it.
