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.

    What a great scene, just like the old Westerns with John Wayne

    I’d love to see scenes like this.


  • Thank you, Malcolm!

    As a little girl, I did not enjoy visiting places like this (it was one of my father’s favorite pastimes). My! How photography has changed my outlook on virtually all things!

    such beautiful skies that add immensely to your sweeping vistas, Arla.

    The sky was “heavy” that day; holding snow. ;)

    Excellent shot, Arla! The cloud has a form of smoke coming out of a chimney. That makes an impression the mill is still busy. And what a stunning background!
