He was moving! I was moving — behind and parallel on a dirt road. The sun was sinking so fast, I thought shooting would be futile … but I shot anyway. No regrets.

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

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

    I was pleased with it … the mustang was moving along so fast, glowing in the afternoon light. I felt lucky to capture him at all, . ;)
