Salvation Mountain

Salvation Mountain


Now this is a site to behold, Salvation Mountain in Niland, California. Niland’s about an hour-and-a-half drive from Palm Springs, California. It’s worth the trip because the size and scope of the place is beyond imagination. 
The mountain is made of adobe mixed with straw, materials developed after the first mountain fell down. 
There are so many photo ops here that you should bring all the cameras you have. You can experiment with all kinds of settings here from wide to narrow apertures to long and short focal lengths. In the inside areas, you’ll need a tripod. 
Don’t miss this place if you’re in the Salton Sea area.


  1. Doubt if I’ll get there any time soon, but I think I saw something on the TV about this guy and his work… I’m still scratching my head, but yep, I can see a lot of photo opportuities with color and design going on there…
