Great Basin Life exists … between … high desert expanses and majestic mountain wilderness.

Daily, I watch the winds of change sweeping away what remains of our western culture and heritage, and the land that has produced them.

My mission is to preserve as much as I can, of that which will soon vanish, through my photography.

    The quarling siblings are in a snit. Brother Thunder smites his drum, as he heaves gusty sighs. In equal Ire, Sister lightning lashes out and sheds torrential tears upon the land. Chaotic though these tantrums be, they leave behind renewal.

  • Beautifully spoken, Dalton. Thank you!

    The world inside this bubble provides no end of inspiration. Thank you for sharing such a powerful image and getting my imagination in gear.

  • Always happy to help a fellow traveler – or Bubbler.
    I’m very glad you found inspiration in the scene – that’s what makes it art.
