A Day In The San Bernardino Mountains
Spending a day up in the San Bernardino Mountains is quite easy for people who live in Southern California.

One of my favorite hobbies is taking pictures of all the beautiful scenery, and often these photographs are the inspiration for my illustrations and paintings.
