Wells Street Overpass

In a walk around downtown Reno last week I shot this as I walked under the Wells Street Overpass.  I was attracted to the shapes, lines and contrast.  I do not shoot too much urban work, but I do enjoy the change.  Urban settings offer a whole new set of compositional elements.

Reno Skyline

This is taken from the Holiday Inn on 6th Street.  The photograph was actually taken before the sun rose. When I went to take the photo I was expecting the casino lights to be on, but I did not realize the turn them off sometime during the night.  The resulting picture was probably better without them.

Hunter Creek Falls

This water fall is about 1 ½ hours into one of the best hikes that is accessible in Reno.  It is the Hunter Creek trail that starts from the upper part of Caughlin Ranch in Reno.  The trail starts just on the northwest side of Caughlin Ranch and within minutes you are in the Mt. Rose Wilderness Area.  You hike from the Reno high desert, into cottonwood, then aspen, through a scattering of lower elevation pines and on to a full on Tahoe forest.   The trail is moderate in difficulty but does require good hiking boots.  What makes this trail stand out is the beauty and diversity.   The High point, although not the end, is this wonderful waterfall.
