Virginia and Truckee
Last weekend I hit the road for some recon and location scouting for an upcoming wedding I’m shooting. Virginia City Nevada is an amazing little town in the middle of rolling hills if you like history, old towns rich in character and really old architecture. I get excited about all three. I left Reno in a wind storm as billowing clouds were ramping up over the Sierras and dropping rain in the basin. I headed up Geiger Grade chasing the sunshine to Virgina City and the wind followed me as rolled into this small mining town. I was happy to have 4 hours of sunshine to explore, meet the caretakers of the Mackay Mansion and drive all over town. I even had time for a short hike with the dog up to the top of town to take in the view and capture the scene. Here’s the day. Take it in and enjoy the remains of the day. Happy.
Here’s a song to carry you along.
…my visual feast.
