During a drive from Reno, we stopped to capture sunset in Carson City. Carson city is one beautiful little place and also the capital of the state of Nevada. It’s also the place I recently fell in love with, and clicked more than a dozen pictures in half an hour. Continue reading “Solitude in Winter”
I love when it rains on the winter weekends. Continue reading “Three shots and one story”
