Postcards from Austin, Nevada
Now that you’ve had an overview of my Nevada trip, I think it is time to get down to details. So settle in for a few weeks of thematic images.
This week I’m presenting “Postcards from Austin, Nevada.” Â I think it is fitting to start here, considering Austin was my home for four days.
My affinity for Austin started in 2004, when I ran the TREK USA Relay. On Day 3 of the relay Austin served as our “port of call.” And they rolled out the red carpet. The (then) proprietors of the International Hotel and Bar served up a killer pasta dinner and they opened the doors early the next morning to feul us up for another 20 miles of running.
With precious little time to explore the town with my camera back then, I made a mental note to return. So here we are.
Today’s shot is a panorama of the town itself. It loses something at this size, so you need to see it bigger. You can click on the image to see a slightly larger version, or you canÂ click here to see a really, really, REALLY BIG versionÂ (it is a 22MB file, so be patient).
Great composition in this!
Love the pano, Bob. I’m really anticipating seeing more of your images from here, it looks like a great location for still images, and also a good backdrop for motion picture production.
