Ghost town in Nevada (Nelson Ghost town)



This was a find I noticed this town on a youtube video, so had to go see what it was all about .....

It looks like it's popping out of the photo Huh! Some people don't like the tone of this but I did it as an experiment to see what people would say, and ya they didn't like it but so what.

Gasoline alley with the home to visit which was a shell only the outside was really there ...

This is one that shows the environment that the town was located in it's was gold mining town which had a lot of killings back in the day.

This town had many cars that looked as good as this one and the shop was a tearsure for the eye and if it was left alone it would not be looking this good because it would be stripped of everything ...

This is the front of the one above and it looks ready to do business, what you think? oil change anyone?

 They had a bunch of these old airplanes that were scattered around the town to take photo's of so here they are....

 This is a crash of drone that was in a movie that was produced here in this town.... 
Fun place to see and spend time taking photo's in...

Holy Cow! Another year gone bye

Boy! I've been lazy, I haven't been taking care of this blog very well, so today the 31st of the month last day of December, I'll post one to bring in the new year with.

So here goes ....

Had a fun time in Vegas but it got to me all the smokers and the pot smokers and it's everywhere you go. I wandered around the strip for a night and then the next morning did a little more at a nice place that we'll get to later.

I couldn't resist the timing of this the fire hydrant along with the woman looking at her phone and not even noticing that I was taking a photo Vegas is something.

 This shopping center was so bright that I had to tone it down and the cars were all stopped right in front of it at the time so it was a hard shot to get so there you go.

I took this photo just because of the water colors and the sky was turning color at the same time ...

I took this in memory of the Beatles and the area is really beautiful.

Ahh! The Eiffel tower, I was trying to get the reflection but the lens isn't wide enough so it's just the Eiffel tower and the lights all around .....

  This is around the MGM I think, I was just lost in my own mind thousands of people and I had my camera equipment stolen from me a couple of weeks prior to this, so nervous.


New York, New York! this is one busy area lots to do here but got to keep on moving there is so much to do and so little time, so move it.

One more of the Eiffel Tower!

This is the Cleveland brain center it's a architectural dream place besides being a brain place for kid's

 Another one 

This is not all of them that I have but don't want to bore you all since there aren't any of you that view this blog anymore. Ha! 

So the end of the year ya! Think! How's your year been? Mine was good at first bad towards the end and that makes me feel ok a bit, heart attack, camera gear stolen was the biggest things that got to me but all in all it's ok. 
Let me know how your year has been! Ok!

Natures stuff

Went to Zion NP today and spent some time in the park and up in the east side of the park also, it was a nice day to be out a little cool and windy in the morning but ended up being really quite nice.

So I up on the East side I found that the leaves were turning color and it's getting pretty up there so spent some time trying my hand at taking close ups of some of the leaves, so here are the results.

Take a look closely at this photo (above) there are a lot of things going on in it! 


Well I'm not kinding the colors are popping up here in Zion NP.
Enjoy the Autumnal time of the year

Observation point hike (Zion again)

On Sunday I took a hike that I've been wanting to do for a while, it's up in Zion National Park near Weeping Rock, it's a long hike going 2100 vertical feet up and takes in 4 miles of hiking along a steep switch back to the top of Observation point.

There are many views on this hike it's wonderful hike, although I would do it in the spring or fall when the temperatures are down to a nicer feeling temp.

Well here are a few of the photo's that I took on the way up and on the way down.

This is looking down into Echo Canyon and out into the Zion proper 

And this is Echo canyon above that deep gorge above. 

This is one of the views to the top 

This was part of what I saw on the hike, it was really hot up there and took a lot out of me.

Take care

Night shooting with the Nikon 24mm PC-e

I have done some night shooting in the past and like it a lot but do to the price of the Nikon 14-24 and the protruding nature of the glass I sold it and moved on to other lenses and became ok with not doing night photography.

I have since purchased some tilt shift lenses and really like them they make me take time to shoot instead of the faster pace of other lenses.

So the reason for this post is I took the 24mm PC-e out for some night shooting to see if it would be good enough for the purpose, and have found that it did OK, not great but OK!  So here is one of the shots that I took last night.

 Now the light was coming from the moon and it eat up the stars so the stars are not as bright 
But not bad, I say. 


This one was taken earlier a test shot, the sky was just bland but I liked it so here it is.

Well another posted blab from me.

About Me

My photo
I lived in Park City,Utah. I've been an avid climber, skier, hiker, Photographer and yoga, participant. Travel much to do all of these activities and want to continue to do more traveling. Now that I've finished my travels of the Oregon Coastline and found that I'm not to fond of the rain but love the Ocean and surf. I'm now settled down in Southern Utah and traveling the four corners area. The warmth of the desert is a welcoming feeling for my wet bones, I love it here and believe I'll stay for awhile. The photographing here is to say the least more fun and really plentiful as you can see if you take a look at my site. Take care and get yourself out of the indoors and out into this great big beautiful world we live in.
