Fall is in the air and I’ve been very busy. I’ve been to Taylor Creek a couple times and still empty for bears there. I was invited to a Nevada Department of Wildlife bear release, though. Tough environment for shooting (tall grass and lots of people), but I got a couple good shots with the bear dogs.
During my recent trips to Taylor Creek, I tried a few panoramas. I like the result!
The ducks cooperated, however. Here are a few duck images from Taylor Creek.
I also took a ride with my ATV group last week. Tough trail and not many pictures. Here’s one of the places we stopped and turned around. You can see why in these pictures.
But I found a beautiful Skunk Cabbage and had to take a picture. Skunk Cabbage gets its name from the pungent odor the plant emits – people don’t like to be near it – but if you need to attract pollenating insects into your garden, a couple of these are welcome. They like wetlands, however, so don’t plant it in your desert backyard (like mine).
But here is the beautiful fall color in the Carson Valley. These colors were gone a couple days after I made this image.
I made a couple other photo trips last week. I went to Reno and took pictures of the Virginia Street bridge and up to Virginia City for a photo walk. The bridge was lots of fun, and I’m not done with those pictures yet, so check back. Virginia City was cold and rainy, and I didn’t get the shots I wanted. I had a great time, however, and want to thank Gordon’s Photo Service and Tamron Lenses for the photo walk and the wild horses for the quick shoot on the way up the hill to Virginia City.
So that’s my journey in the last couple weeks – or at least that part I’m sharing with you. Check back for more Virginia Street bridge and Virginia City pictures later this week!
