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...:-)

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!!!

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.
