Santa Monica Mountains No. 1 [Photo]

Santa Monica Mountains No. 1

 
I took a photo drive around the Santa Monica Mountains above Malibu on Wednesday. I went specifically looking for this hazy effect and obviously found it.
This reminds me so much of an exercise we did in art class, drawing imaginary Mountains fading into the distance.

I took this photo while visiting the Antelope Valley Indian Museum in Palmdale, California, one of my favorite museums. The surrounding deserts and buttes are so striking and intense it is almost hard to decide what to photography when you are there.
