Nevada and the Mohave

An interesting stay at Whiskey Pete’s casino and hotel situated at Primm, Nevada near the Californian border. This place looks pretty Disney from the outside, and sure is glitzy, however, the rooms are generous and the service is second to none, so for the money it’s great value. Upon entering the main building and in order to reach the registration desk you have to negotiate rows of all singing and flashing slot machines trying to entice the dollars out of your pockets. Yep! they had a couple of mine…………….

The Mohave desert, California, an arid rain-shadow desert and the driest desert in North America. It is in the North American Southwest, primarily within southeastern California and southern Nevada, and it occupies 47,877 sq mi. Small areas also extend into Utah and Arizona. Our trip from Primm to LA primarily along interstate 15 took in some of the most stunning of desert landscapes, if you make the effort to drive off the beaten track ie. come off the interstate and travel some of the minor roads and tracks it is amazing what you can see.

Photography - The Capture of Moments Gone By.......... I studied photography way back in the 1970’s. We used film camera’s and digital was not even on the horizon. Since then I’ve learned to appreciate the small things that make up the beautiful world we live in. To photograph special moments in time and translate them into art without feeling the need to over-process. A great image is great because of the moment it captures and the skill and patience needed to capture it…
