PS Challenge – June 15, 2017

Today’s PS Challenge comes from Lake Tahoe. My lovely bride and I took a drive to the Lake yesterday and hiked around the Taylor Creek Visitor’s Center. We didn’t do the Rainbow Trail – we took the Lake of the Sky Trail to the Kiva Beach area.

For those of you who don’t recognize her, this is my lovely bride. She looks very relaxed since she retired and is sporting a new hairdo!

PS Challenge – June 10, 2017

Today’s PS Challenge image comes from East Valley Road in the Carson Valley. A couple days ago, we had a nice storm front come through, bringing cooler temperatures and some interesting and gorgeous skies. This is a view of Genoa Peak and Duane Bliss Peak, in the Sierras and forming the northwest border of the Carson Valley.

I couldn’t resist processing the image in black and white to bring out the drama.

PS Challenge – June 5, 2017

A couple days ago, my lovely bride and I decided to take a hike along the Carson River Trail. I hiked the trail a couple months ago, before the mosquitoes hatched and gained air superiority along the River. Since I didn’t have insect repellent in the PhotoRanger, we cut the hike short to preserve my legs. For the first time ever, someone (meaning the mosquitoes) thought I was sweeter than Susan. Please note – I placed a bottle of Off in the PhotoRanger so I’m not caught unarmed again!

While we were on the trail, however, I grabbed a quick shot of the River with the Sierras in the background. The ‘vee’ in the water to the right of the big tree is a Cinnamon Teal swimming away, but trying to maintain a cool demeanor as he did so.

PS Challenge – June 4, 2017

Today’s PS Challenge include 2 images (landscape and detail) taken at Jake’s Wetlands in Minden NV. I found these Daisies on a hillside along the path on the southwest side of the wetlands. The view of Jobs Peak and the Sierras in the background is a bonus!

PS Challenge – May 17, 2017

I took a drive down US 395 past Topaz Lake (lots of water in Topaz, but still room for more!) and over Monitor Pass this morning. Lots of snow and water in places I haven’t seen water before – gorgeous views everywhere. A little chilly and occasionally breezy, but a nice drive and shoot nonetheless.

This image was taken from the east side of Monitor Pass, looking southeast. I thought you might enjoy a change of view (an image that’s not Jobs Peak).
