November 27, 2006
I got a call from author Bill O'Neil this morning thanking us for naming him Best Living NonFiction Writer in the resource guide and fifth annual Best of the West awards which just came out . He was thrilled and that made my day.

Woke up to a vivid red sunrise. Pretty spectacular:

Worked yesterday on two landscapes, one an aerial for the Top Secret Project and the other an impending storm. Both have subtle effects I'm not known for. Ha:

As I mentioned yesterday, we encountered a very long line of cars as we approached Hoover Dam on Friday night. The cars were backed up about four miles and it took us an hour and a half to get across. The new bridge and cutoff will be a lifesaver if they ever finish it. You can see it below in the first photo. Evidently two cranes were blown over and put the project behind schedule. They are still supposed to finish by 2008.

As we waited and crawled along I took a ton of reference photos, and captured this shot of bighorn sheep climbing a side canyon. I would have never seen it if we hadn't been stopped. Life is funny that way.
