A final set of images from my visit to Fort Churchill, these showing the line of trees kept alive by the meager waters of the Carson River.
These are more shots from Fort Churchill State Park, Nevada. (see previous post) These images are more about the sky and clouds than the ruins of the old fort. I was lucky enough to visit just as a storm was blowing across the Sierra Nevada … lucky for photography, not so lucky with strong winds blowing dust and dirt.
Fort Churchill State Park is located south of Silver Springs, Nevada along the Carson River. It was originally an army supply base and provided some logistic support for the surrounding area. When the railroad came through, the need for the base disappeared and it was abandoned. It is now a state park and the buildings are maintained to keep them from further deterioration … but they are not restored.
These are more of the “lost iPhone images” from my road trip in April 2021. The image above is with the wide angle lens. Revisiting the memories of that trip makes me think of doing another. But then I think of the increased cost of gas and I think that my road trip whim may be just that.
But who knows?
I enjoy watching clouds, and there is much to be said for clouds in the desert areas. And that is besides giving some (temporary) relief from the sun when one drifts over. Maybe it has to do with the wide open vistas or maybe their lack of rain threat. Regardless, I was going through my photos doing some organization (?) and found that I had taken some iPhone photos on a trip last year that I had never imported into Lightroom. More forgotten delights! These two are a couple of those.
