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.

    Wow very nice, It reminds me of a Charles Russell painting only the cow looks well fed! Excellent capture

  • Thank you, Elaine! I don’t know what they find to eat out there. Weed-cicles don’t sound very appealing to me. ;]

    Yep…it be a brown cow…but great use of rule of thirds and mood…looks pretty darn cold too!!! LOL

  • Thanks very much, Susan – the image was very carefully composed that way.

    When I adjusted curves, tho, the cow turned red. Desaturation brush brought the red down – and a little more of that produced the “frost” on her hide. I liked the effect.
