The striking blue of the sky was obscured by all types of clouds that continued far out to the horizon and were reflected in the calm sea before us, blurring the lines between earth, sea and sky. It's easy to see what once attracted tourists here from Los Angeles
The next few photos are from Galleta Meadows, where sculptor Ricardo Breceda welds these often strange creations out of thin gauge sheets of steel.
