The PFA of Roy Gomm Elementary in Reno, Nevada is incredibly dedicated to its school. The parents and volunteers of the PFA organize one of the best school fundraisers in town. PFA member, Lainie Reuter, contacted me to donate an auction item. This year, a 16x20 framed art print from our Nevada Skies Photography Art Collection will be included in the Denim & Spring Fundraiser. Thank you for supporting our business and including us in the auction.
This is the second print in a series of landscapes that capture the vastness and beauty of Nevada.

A little backstory. Most of the images in my Nevada Skies series have been taken en route to or from a session. This particular photograph was taken at the Nevada/ California border on my way to Portola. I was headed to the Chalet View Lodge to participate in a wedding faire. The snow fell for two days leaving the desert mountains draped in a white velvet blanket. White and blue. I had to pull over and photograph it. I called my husband to tell him the roads were fine, the view was stunning, and it was a perfect drive through the desert. Ten seconds later, the car hit ice and crashed into the cement barricade over Long Valley U.C. Bridge. The car was totaled but I was able to walk toward the comforting embrace of a stranger, Brian. White, blue, and us.
This photograph reminds me to soak a little longer in the who's and the what's that make life beautiful.
I plan to return in spring to photograph another image for the Nevada Skies Series.
