The state of Nevada being mostly a desert environment is lightly populated outside of Las Vegas and Reno areas. This view is along Highway 95 north of Winnemucca, near the Oregon state border.
In the foreground the yellow flowered bushes are Rabbit Brush.

The warm light is beautiful, but the composition could have been better if you had avoid to set the horizon line right in the middle of the picture.

bella fotografia, piacevole per la bella contrapposizione tra cielo e terra colta nel nord del Nevada in territorio semidesertico.
La composizione è ottima, le nuvole fanno da bel complemento, i colori sono molto piacevoli ed i cespugli fioriti fanno da ottimo primo piano e ravvivano la monotonia del paesaggio desertico.
Ciao e buona giornata

you sure captured the sense of scale and isolation here, a wide open natural Vista. I would love to explore a place like this but fear of getting list would no doubt keep me On the highway. I see this and am reminded of many films, most notably ones about kidnap :)

A very familiar sight, sometimes it's really hard to imagine what life was in the old frontier days traveling through those barren land. I get scared when I don't have cell phone signal in remote highways. Nice capture with good details. Well done, tfs.
