Wes has been working the Diablo Canyon outage for the last couple of months. Taking advantage of the first real weekend in 2 months, we decided to make a little trip to Parkfield. It rests along the San Andreas Fault line and has had a history of fairly regular earthquakes. The USGS has set up monitoring devices and collect data in an attempt to better predict what may happen all along the San Andreas Fault. We took a drive up Hwy. 101 to Hwy. 41 East and drove that way through Shandon. These old, rusty metal sorting silos stood along the road like this with nothing else around for miles. I'm not sure what they were used for but they looked really old. The photograph was taken using the pinhole setting (dark circular margins) and then processed using the sepia tones. Love the final photograph! To see more photographs like these, visit my photography website here.
