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.

    I know you probably wish it were warmer Arla, but I’m really enjoying all these snow/cold photos :)

  • I am old enough to realize there is no point in arguing with the weather … I’m pleased to hear that you are enjoying the scenery too, Alison!

    A beauty Alra! There is a bright side to this weather we are being pounded with after all!.. Love the soft light..D.
  • Thanks, Dennis!
    Shooting snow is kind of tricky (eg, interesting), and I have had a great time with the fog frost. We don’t ordinarily have so much of it. Spring still seems like a long time away, tho. :]

    wonderful – thought it was an underwater shot to begin with… Fab capture.

  • Thank you, Rose; the “coral reef” efffect is the result of freezing fog.

    Wow, I love this. Having driven through Ely it’s so hard to imagine the desert being covered in snow like this. Beautiful shot.:)

  • Thanks, Ann … it may be like this as much as 8 months of the year.
