Okay, so my mind went straight to the gutter when I saw this sign for an RV park. I guess I’m still a teenager at heart 😉
Despite the desolate feel of the area, the Salton Sea still seems to be a relatively popular destination for RV travellers. There were at least 5 or 6 camped out at this particular park, and I saw even more at some other locations along the western shore. Aside from the apparently amazing bird watching, I’m not sure what else one would do while camping out along the Salton Sea. From the few beaches I visited, I’d say swimming is an absolute no-no due to the obscene amount of dead and rotting fish that line the shore and shallows, and despite the warm weather I experienced, I don’t think boating is popular this time of year. Not a place I’d want to camp, but to each their own.
A quick processing note: The three photos that make up this series thus far are all single exposures edited in onOne’s PhotoTools. I stacked about 6 effects to create the warm, vintage look for this series, and then saved the filter stack as a preset…an awesome feature in PhotoTools. This way, for each new image, I can just run my saved preset and cut out a whole lot of editing time. From there, I perform some minor edits back in Lightroom.
