My first video that I published on YouTube in October 2016 was titled The Wild Horses of Nevada. We were camped near Pahrump, Nevada at the time (our group included Debra Dickinson, Bob Wells, and Al Christensen) and these majestic animals visited our camp several times.
The beautiful stallion that is featured in the video thumbnail actually walked through a camp where Debra and I were staying several miles outside of Pahrump in the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest under the light of the moon. Oh what a glorious, if eerily mystical, sight he was that night!
Later, as we were camped in the Pahrump valley with others, these wild horses visited us several more times. My videography skills have improved since I made this video, but it remains one of my favorites for all that it represents. I hope you too enjoy the wild horses of Nevada.
Thunderstorms in Eastern Wyoming are fairly common during spring and summer, probably unsurprisingly as this area is mostly plains with the mountains starting less than 100 miles to the west.
Storms here usually approach from the west, but often split before reaching Gillette with the storm tracking north and south of the city. The downside with these storms is that it can be difficult to plan evening activities. The upside, however, is that they usually cool the temperature considerably and are often quite beautiful to watch.
I tried unsuccessfully to capture some of the lightning strikes from this storm, but did capture some interesting photos of the sky during the storm.
As a native of New England, I thought we had a lock on amazing fall foliage. In the fall of 2017 I had the opportunity to spend several weeks in the Colorado high country to complete some freelance video work. The experience was beyond anything I could have imagined.
Watching the aspen turn golden yellow with stunning mountains and sweeping meadows as a backdrop is something that everyone should experience at least once. This video includes some of my favorite scenes from autumn in the Colorado mountains.
