This calendar can be customized with any of
your favorite “*Wild Horses Of The Open Range” images in my portfolio.

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.

    Awwww What a Spectacular image of these two sweethearts…well maybe sweethearts..lol I love the contrasting colors between the two of them . I bet a a little one from these two would be just gorgeous!! I so envy you being able to go and see these Magnificent animals anytime you want to!! Excellent work as always, my friend!!! WTG =D

  • Yes, I’ll be looking for an INTERESTING looking foal, in the fall.

    Mm – not ANY time, Carla. Some days they hide really well – and of course, winter snow makes them hard to get to.
