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.

    of Arla. this is so incredibly moving. Like God was on the scene.

  • Thanks very much, Mary Ann … yes,

    It was rather magical …. to think of the people sleeping soundly in their beds, as the best of the day was touching them, unawares.

    A light snow had fallen the night before, and everything was crusted with glimmering ice. The horizon was blanketed by thick clouds, so the sun did not break through until it was fairly high in the sky.

    I don’t often take photographs of the town as a whole, but this one time, it truly was “in its best light”. :D

    Like it a lot, Arla. Amazing sun effects with little damaging flare.

  • Thanks, Ken … I had to kind of shoot “around the corner” of the building …
