I was running errands with my lovely bride yesterday and saw this beautiful view of Jobs Peak from the south end of Gardnerville. The clouds obscure the peak itself, but they seem to match the horizon line of the Sierras.

…and it’s getting hot outside! Thankfully, the Carson Valley cools down at night, which helps keep the house comfortable!
I’ve had an exciting couple weeks since my last post. I received an email from a museum in Roseville, California, asking if they could use some of my panoramas in their train diorama. I’ll let you know when the display is ready! I have note cards at the Dangberg Home Ranch Historic Park. They’re the big size, so go get them. I also got a call from a company looking for a picture for a proposal. The image came out great and I wish them luck with their proposal.
I got out and did some long exposure/HDR stream shots. They’re so much prettier when the vegetation has leaves and a little color. I also spent last Sunday at Heritage Park in Gardnerville, shooting the Car Show and The Great Race lunch stop. The pictures came out great, but my Canon 7D broke and is at the Canon Repair Center. We hope it’s not fatal! While I don’t think it broke because I was taking pictures of foreign cars and those made by the Evil Empire, I’m not ruling it out!
Take a look at the Heritage Park Car Show page for pictures of the car show, and The Great Race page for pictures of the race cars! There are links to The Great Race website on both pages.
So, here’s a few images. Enjoy – PHOTOROGR
November is slow for the nature and wildlife photographer here in the Carson Valley. The bears are heading for their winter beds. The leaves are gone from the trees. The raptors are slowly returning to the Valley. The wild horses are winning at hide and seek. We’ve had some early snow, which has provided some good photo opportunities, mostly of the mountains. I’ve been working with Photoshop a lot, trying some new editing techniques. I’ve done a couple images in Lightroom, too, but I think I like Photoshop a little better.
Here’s a few images from the last couple weeks.
I got my first Eagle of the season. Driving up Mottsville Lane last week, and there he was on a utility pole. He sat for a minute or so, and then took off.
Last Sunday, Edsel woke me up early to show me the amazing sunrise. I tried to resist and stay in my warm bed, but ultimately got up and made these images.
And here’s a couple more panoramas, just for fun.
One last shot – I was out on a snowy morning and tried to make an image of the ‘welcome to Gardnerville’ sign in Sunset Park, at the border between Minden and Gardnerville. A 24″ x 36″ print of this picture is on display in the Gardnerville town office. I need to get a nice spring, summer and fall shot so they can display a different picture with each season.
Until next time – enjoy!! PHOTOROGR
