Hi! Thanks for taking a look at some of my photos. As I go on my adventures to do research and get inspiration for my writing, I frequently take photos. Thanks for looking! Many of these are also available at the Bristlecone General Store in Baker, Nevada, the Art Bank in Ely, Nevada, and the Eureka Restoration Enterprise gallery in Eureka, Nevada. Please contact me if you’re interested in using any of these photos for commercial use. You can also find a few items on Pixels.com.

I’ve divided my photos into four main categories. Please click on them to see additional photos.

Great Basin Magical Lighting and Night Skies Photography Exhibit at the Courthouse Gallery, Eureka, Nevada

I chose to focus on two themes: the magical lighting of the Great Basin and the amazing dark skies of one of the few remaining dark spots in the continental United States. The combination of Basin and Range topography with the changing light conditions at sunrise, sunset, and during storms provides a beautiful canvas that shows off the Great Basin as a place to linger in and experience rather than a place to race through to get to the next big city. Because so much of the Great Basin is far from population centers, light pollution is low and the area is a great place to observe the night skies, looking beyond our world to many far, far away. My goal with this exhibition is to help people feel the beauty that is both near and far from this area where we love to live and visit.
