Artist's Description

There are places I remember

This capture has been taken at Sacramento pass (7,154 ft.), NV on U.S. route 50 right from a vehicle in the early morning of a wonderful day. I was fascinated by grandeur of the iconic miles-away Wheeler peak (13,063 ft), the impressive mountain by its own right and its all by lonesome self. No wonder local Shoshone tribe indians called it Biap (the great one) Mountain. From the desert floor to the summit of Wheeler Peak there are 5 ecological zones, which include streams, lakes, alpine plants, the most south located glacier in North America, abundant wildlife and a variety of forest types including groves of ancient Bristlecone Pines. What a place!

There are many stunning places on earth and many are more beautiful to a viewer‘s eye than this one. But there are just one or a few places only where your heart is. In this picture, Wheeler peak wears a fashionable cloud-hat and abstemiously uses delicate golden make-up of the morning sun. The peak itself is mostly covered by a closer Bold Mountain (11,562 ft.) in the center. All in a pure aristocratic manner. Jeff Davis peak (12,771 ft.) is to the left of Wheeler peak with a „Devil‘s finger“ in between them. Buck Mountain (10,972 ft.) is on the very left. Both Bold Mountain and Buck Mountain are on a shoulder ridge of the Snake Range. The nearby junipers made a special aroma and freshness thus creating an extra daze to a photographer. Life is good, Nevada is fascinating… And that‘s only a small part of it: just one gem in its resplendent crown…

In my lifeThe Beatles

There are places I remember
All my life though some have changed
Some forever not for better
Some have gone and some remain
All these places had their moments
With lovers and friends I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life I’ve loved them all

But of all these friends and lovers
There is no one compares with you
And these memories lose their meaning
When I think of love as something new
Though I know I’ll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I’ll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more

Though I know I’ll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I’ll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more
In my life I love you more
