“What’s so special about a wet little hummingbird, hovering among crabapple blossoms?” you might ask.

Well, what if I were to tell you that the white background is, indeed, six inches of freshly-fallen SNOW! Must be Springime in Nevada!

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.

    Awesome capture!
    It tried to snow here this morning too. But all we got was cold rain, and the mountains around got the snow.

  • I woke up to a blanket of heavy, wet snow. That all melted and now it is snowing again. The desert is going to be AMAZING, once the sun finally come out again.
