Faster than a Speeding Bullet

Why is it whenever I call for Superman, he always seems to be flying by on his way to somewhere else?  Thanks for looking!

First Dawn at Black Rock

New Year's morning 2016 at the Black Rock Desert, Gerlach, Nevada.

My plan was to shoot from the east side of the playa to get the alpenglow on the Granite Range.  When I got near the playa it was practically white out conditions from blowing snow and I missed seeing the turn off to go up the east side.  I drove at a crawl to get through Gerlach and decided to go up the west side where the wind wasn't too bad against the mountains.  Driving out onto the playa, the blowing snow was worse the further I went.  It wasn't yet 6 am and still dark so I back tracked my way to the road because I knew I wasn't going to be able to do any photography, nor did I have any idea when or if conditions would clear.  Besides, allowing my car to become a very large snowball for no good reason did seem rather stupid.  The wind did begin to let up as I made my way back to the east side road, and with the dawning light I could see a low fog over the playa.  The dogs and I waited in my toasty warm truck until the fog began to lift and I could see the mountain peaks before venturing out onto this frozen landscape.  I'm a total wimp when it comes to seriously cold below freezing weather and I spent more time thawing out in my truck between the very few shots I ended up getting, but at least I can say I got something for my efforts…and I think I'd do it again in spite of myself.

Thanks for looking!

Sam and Frodo

These two young wild stallions were my favorites.  Too old to stay with their moms, they spent most of their time together often defending themselves from stallions with established harems.  With plenty of scars and fresh wounds, these boys were scrappy, especially Sam who didn't shy away from any confrontation including starting a few of his own.

Thanks for looking!

A lamp light casting an angel like pattern across the face of an old garage.  Just because I like to do something different now and then.
Thanks for looking!

Receding Fog at Black Rock Point

Black Rock Desert in Winter, Gerlach, Nevada.

It was still a bit breezy, but some areas around the playa had layers of fog until the sun began to warm things up.  The sun had been up just long enough to highlight this range, with the mountains behind me keeping the playa in shade.  It was one heck of an amazingly quiet morning and as far as I could see, I was the only one there.

Thanks as always for taking the time for a look!

This is how I decided to start 2016.  Well, sort of.  I began the year with my very first shot being a simple abstract.  It was near or below 0 degrees and after a few short minutes I was jumping back into my car to thaw out.  It's a long story and I did get a couple more shots, but the important thing is I got out, I went somewhere different, had an adventure, and probably most important, the dogs and I returned safely with all our fingers, toes…and paws!  Happy New Year!

Thanks so much for taking the time to look!

Love the texture and light in this simple abstract.  
Zero degrees!   That's cold for for Ca...and especially for you ;-)    I'm glad you got out to shoot.
