Description Took this photo in 2010 while visiting this natural area located at the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains and looking from the trail above the canyon. I really like the perspective captured... from the trail, to the canyon, to the layers of hills and mountains.The Devil's Punchbowl, elevation 4,750 ft, is a tilted sandstone formation within the Angeles National Forest, California. The Punchbowl is a deep canyon categorized as a plunging syncline. The Punchbowl Canyon is 300 feet deep at the vista point. The peculiar uptilted rock formations found in the area are layers of sedimentary rocks formed long ago. Later they were squeezed into their present, steeply tilted form by ongoing uplift action along the Punchbowl and Pinyon Faults and by pressures along the San Andreas Fault. The Punchbowl Fault is to the south of the rock formation, while the Pinyon and San Andreas Faults are to the north.LARGER IMAGES ARE AVAILABLE FROM MY PERSONAL WEBSITE!

A Little Bit About Me
I became immersed in the business of art in 1989 as an owner and operator of three art galleries. Before that time, in the late 1970's, I was a marketer for Christian Graphics and Designs. Now, in the 21st Century, I have landed as a recorder and instigator of the imagination.
What I Do
I strive to capture scenes, moments, places or thoughts... and share a lasting impression to the viewer! My niche is not necessarily found in one style or theme ... but in the scenes that many might just pass right on by without noticing the small pleasures that they afford. Living life to it's fullest includes noticing those things, places or concepts that we take for granted. Perhaps we need to pause a bit more and enjoy a hot beverage along the way.
