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.
What a gorgeous and moving capture A fave for sure.
Oh my! I apologize for the delayed response — I didn’t see your comment, before.
Thank you so much, Sandra!

Jaw-droppingly beautiful. Pure inspiration…
Thank you SO MUCH, Sylvia!!
Egads Arla !! It looks beautiful BUT did you find it a bit frightening? I did and I am only looking at the photo, it is truely AWESOME………..Ron xx
Not frightening … as I was in a most familiar place, accustomed to atmospheric phenomena like this … but it was literally “breath-taking” … I was torn between wanting to marvel in the moment, and trying to capture the magnitude of it, as well as the camera would allow. Of course, there was no way to fit it all into one frame, and that was frustrating.
