Green Springs Ranch, Nevada
7 images Created 28 Feb 2015
This ranch is a perfect metaphor for the wild and free version of Nevada I have loved for 40 years. Green Springs Ranch is nowhere close to anything but heaven. Watered by a deep source of pure artesian water, the place was settled in about 1870 and worked until sometime in the 2000s. I happened on it one day in October of 2015. It happened to be the day of a solar eclipse. You can see the changing light in the sky as the pictures progress. I met a cowboy and his working animals here. They were chasing cattle over 3 million acres for the fall gather. I didn't want to come home. Day 3 of the Second Annual Great Nevada Photographic Exploratory Expedition.
