Schell Creek Mountain Range
Eastern Nevada, USA

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.

    This image always brings me a wistful smile — it was the first one I sold after a couple of years’ hiatus. I wasn’t trying to sell it, just somebody saw it on a forum and offered to buy. I was stunned and amazed, and went into quite a frenzy, just trying to get it printed properly (keep in mind that I live in the middle of Nowhere) …

    It started a snowball effect — selling something is just as much a thrill now, as it was that day, and I will keep trying ….

    Lovely shot! I love the shadows of the clouds! Selling? What’s that? Just kidding, I think it’s awesome that you can sell your work, it is beautiful and I can see why it’s a thrill to sell something! What a blast to be able to share your work and to know that people want to enjoy it in their home!! Awesome! Great shot as usual, Arla!

    Ah! Thank you, Ann, for your kind comments!

    Well, it’s not as if this happens every day … or every week … not even at all, some months – like in winter. If I were depending upon it to survive, I’d have starved long ago …. I don’t enjoy promoting, but making a sale? That’s fun!
