'Vein of Life' gets awarded.

Applied Arts, which is Canada's premier magazine focused on visual communications has chosen images from my personal series about the California Aqueduct as winners in the Nature, Landscape & Wildlife category. The whole series consists of a total of 42 images which document the curvy California Aqueduct.  The mood, subjects and stories changed mile for mile and around each bend I found myself as an observer along the concrete banks discovering an atmosphere that I can only describe through the photos I captured.  Today in California the supply of water is almost non existent and in dire times, which made this project so important for me. One of the man-made structures easily forgotten and not always understood is the 700  mile long California Aqueduct, a huge system of canals starting from San Joaquin-Sacramento River Delta and stretching down to Southern California.
