Photographer's Note

I think I'm near Winnemucca, but it's hard to be sure. The long stretches of high desert along Interstate 80 are perhaps legendary for their plainness, but I found them lovely and dramatic. Of course, I was seeing them through the eyes of a photographer!

PP: separated sky and ground on different layers and converted each to b/w using the Channel Mixer with low blues and high reds. Cleaned the sky up a bit with very slight motion blur, then used my texturizer approach to the ground by using the watercolor filter at 15% and the crosshatch filter at 15%. This helps preserve and interpolate texture so none is lost.

I hope you enjoy Nevada when you go!
