I enjoyed your picture of the bricks with the words "WILD ASS MINING CO." Unless you know something otherwise, I would suspect those words may have been painted on those bricks back in the 1950's or '60's by a group of 5 men from California calling themselves the Wild Ass Mining Co. or WAMCO. They traveled in the northern part of Nevada. They have all passed on now, but I, one of the sons of the originals, and a group of 4 others have formed WAMCO II, and we travel, annually to Jarbidge, NV.
Paula, I enjoyed your "Finding Peace" gallery and after reading your tribulation I thought to remind myself that there is a hidden meaning behind all events as they serve our own evolution. The photographs through out your galleries give clue to a very kind and happy person. Places like Lamoille Canyon and the Big Hole valley will always be safe havens from a world full of uncertainty. You're in the right place and have a wonderful talent. I enjoy your photos very much.
I am taking great enjoyment in viewing your galleries. I have no doubt you will show us Montana in the same manner as you have the Nevada galleries. Beautiful work and a love in what you do, see and bring out in your images.
Thanks for visiting my gallery Paula. Please come back as I'll be posting more. To answer your question on the processing, it's HDR or high dynamic range. I use Topaz Adjust.
You have a great collection of diverse photos. Congrats!
Happy Easter to you and yours

i like your galleries.. really well done..

hi Paula. Happy Holidays. God bless you.
Paula, your work is so beautiful, and I cant tell you how I have enjoyed it so much. My family roots go back to Lamoille and Elko, I remember all the stories from my gramma who spent alot of her youth there, and at this holiday time I miss the family who is no more. These photos of the elko/lamoille NV area have filled my heart with a smile in remembering the beauty up there, and have brought my grammas stories back to life. thank you so very kindly. she loved the Lamoille church. thank you! patti williams, Klamath Falls, Oregon **McBride was our family who helped start NV power Co, and had 1st log flume at their Lamoille Ranch. They also had a mansion in Elko,-I think their pictures are in the elko museum. I havent been to elko in years physically-only in spirit.
Your photos are awesome! I lived in Spring Creek from 1995-1999, now in Wyoming. I worked for Lynn Draper at Breitenstein House for a few months until she closed it. It's nice to see the real Nevada that people don't know about. What part of Colorado are you from? The pics of Utah look like my husband's old stomping grounds, Green River, Moab, etc. Also, it was neat to see Bodie, that is one of the coolest places in the country! Keep up the awesome work!
Thank you very much for your recent visit to my galleries. Your kind, supportive comments are very much appreciated.
Your galleries area amazing .I do enjoy very much and will come back to check for more

I wish I had stumbled onto your sight earlier (before Montana) as I live in Truckee California and have been contimplating a photo shoot in Lamoille canyon because a friend of a friend of mine is a guide up there.... but I wasn't sure it would be worth the trip and the money for a guide. Ha! you sure made up my mind for me it's gorgeous!
I'm just an amateur but your photography is so inspiring I think I'll start trying harder! My husband is a custom home builder here in Tahoe and we were both admiring your new home......actually I do all the photography for our brochures and website but I prefer landscape photography... architecture is very difficult for me. I have a question for you.....I shoot with a Nikon D200, D2X and D300. I noticed you also shoot with the D2x and D300 so I was wondering what your favorite lenses are for these cameras?
I hope you will keep adding pictures I enjoy them so much....I too discovered them on Wunderground. I have a gallery at Smugmug also but haven't had time to put too much up. If you go to Smugmug type in 2peas my girlfriend and I share the gallery but so far she hasn't put anything up. She lives in San Diego and she has been into Photography way longer than I have. We go on photography roadtrips all the time it's so much fun to find other people who share your interest in Photography!
By the way, I visit a friend in Darby Montana once in awhile are you anywhere close to Darby? It would be fun to meet you in person you are a treasure!!!!
All the best to you! Linda

Just making a click-away trip from WU to see what you've been working on and to visit my ol' faves - the authentic cowboys and occasional cow girl photos. Paula, you are an artist. You capture the emotion and space of the country and people you obviously love. I enjoyed my visit immensely. Don't worry, I'll be back for another visit.
Thank you so much for your kind words. Your photos are gorgeous, its fun seeing the other side of Nevada. :-)
Wonderful renditions. I am a photographer also. This time of year I like to venture through the colors of Arizona, my native state. Have enjoyed your work. Would like to hear from you about the landscapes of places you have visited.
Thank you very much
Your photos absolutely take my breath away! I am truly humbled. Thank you so much for sharing such beauty!

Dear Paula, After living in las vegas for 35 years my daughter and I jaunted to Elko to buy land went thru Lamoille valley and were actually lost in there, finally a worker came along and told us how to get out. It was quite funny later and we realized everything you have talked about is true it is gourgeousin there. Came upon your pictures and couldn't get enough, I feel kindred to you.Hope your as happy in Montana and Iwill always remember lost in Lamoille.
You surely have a collection wonderful photos - most impressive
WOW Paula....You are a master, at catching one chance of a life time photo's at a still moments of time.See you in near future.
Peace "The White Buffalo
Your photos are absolutely stunning! What a wonderful gift for photography you have!
I miss your "new" photos on Wunderground. I keep checking to see if you have posted any photos from Montana. You must be very busy!
tag your it! what's new girl? are you moved and settled yet. Has the house sold? there is a fire 6 miles north of me in Midpines Ca. the skies are dark and ash is falling all over the ranch. We are just keeping our fingers crossed that it doesn't burn this way.hope you are well and things are good. I just got back from a month abroard ,a trans-Alantic crossing with 7 countries. lots of chances to work wiyh the new camera. bye for now and keep up the good work. some of your latest work is reminding me of the 70's with the color and rverse image stuff. a little out there for me. I am still trying to capture a moment as my eye sees it , much less how I might envision it.Be well and I hope you get a chance to stop by wunderground.com and see this years pictures

I stumbled accross your gallaries & just wanted to say "Wow". Nevada is my home...I grew up in Tonopah & Vegas but now live in Kansas. I miss it to say the least. You have captured the pictures in my head & heart perfectly. Now if I could only get a scratch & sniff screen for the sagebrush...
Nevadan in Kansas
What a glorious gift your photos are!! Thank you so much for your generosity in posting them. I am deeply appreciative and grateful.
Hello! I lived in Elko for 12 years...and am originally from MT. Where are you moving to in MT?! Ever since I found this site, I've loved your pics. Hopefully you'll be doing MT the same justice as you have NV, because in my humble opinion...it's hard to make NV look pretty, y'know?! But hey...I'm a little biased...!
I love your "winter sun" photo on wunderground... absolutely fabulous.
Hi Paula --
As a neighbor in Elko, I want to tell you how much I have enjoyed your photos of Nevada -- and your appreciation of what a wonderfully beautiful area we live in. Best of luck in Montana.
Thank you for your kind words. Dane is the one that sent me to your site. You take great pictures, it is fun to follow your work. We are on opposite sides of the state. :-)
I droped you a note last week and hadn't herd back.I hope all is well. I got the feeling from the blog that you were ill for a spell ??? maybe just busy?? I'm still trying to educate myself on this new Canon Rebel XTi. Did you know that the majority of the approvers choice photos on Wunderground have been taken with a canon of some type.
Now All I need is some more practice. be well and thanks for the phopts as always
Paula, your imagery is stunning and breathtaking. I spent 5 years in Colorado and when I see your images, I can feel the sensation of awe and wonder I had physically standing in the Rockies. Thank you for sharing all this for people to see.....
I know how busy you must be right now.I just want to say thanks for the e-mail and how touched I am by your work.I like seeing the parts of your world through your gifted eyes
and Your lense. take care and be well let me know when the dust settles. in the mean time I have lots of practice to do, to learn this art. thanks

thank you for your beautiful pictures, which gave good impressions of Nevada. I have visited Nevada in 1996 and I see the pictures before my eyes, when I was looking to your pics. May be the next visit I want to drive the highway 50.
I have to apologize, because my english is very bad.
Better than "delog" in his comment I can't put in words.

You have a wonderful collection of beautiful images, congrats!
Very beautiful shots and presentation you have in galleries. I will be back to see more for sure.
All your pictures are beautiful Paula! You do live in a beautiful part of America, certainly not what I would call desolate!! It is nice to see your pictures again my friend. Your friend from downunder.
really enjoyed viewing your galleries - superb work and the locations look amazing!
Good morning Ms P
mmmm my old photography teacher use to say a GOOD photo tells a story to the viewer
a GREAT photo is poetry to the viewer's eye
some folks see a photo and snap it thats all.
some write captivating verse with a camera lens
like Byron with a glass lens ----like you do
continue what you are doing --- let the light and shadow be your guide
Dear Paula! Thank you very very much for beautiful moments, when I considered your pictures. I am russian, I live in Kiev. Your Nevada very looks like on nature near Ural Mountains in Russia. How beautiful our general Home! Sorry for my English :)))
Love your site and all of your gorgeous pictures. Keep up the great work!
Very nice gallery
Paula, thank you for the kind words. I truly believe I have the same love of Alaska as you do of Nevada. Looking through your eyes at your beautiful landscapes one can tell that your heart sings a beautiful song. Thank you for sharing part of your heart. Ron
Having looked at your galleries its hard to believe that anyone could ever have considered Nevada to be desolate, barren and incapable of sustaining any kind of beauty!
You do real justice to Nevada. I am in the middle of moving to Tucson and will be exploring the West, after looking at your photo's, I will be visiting Nevada.
Roger LeBlanc Photography
Thank you so much for visiting my galleries and offering such wonderful support and comments.
You are one of my favourite artists and your galleries of Nevada are truly amazing. To explore your Nevada through your eyes (and the lens of the camera)...one can sense your tremendous love of its amazing beauty and wonder. I look forward to your future works.
Congratulations and best wishes. Roger
I'm glad you visited my galleries and led me here. I especially like your HWY 50 gallery. I will be out that way next month and can't wait. I'll be checking out your galleries over the next couple of days. Regards,
Paula, I'm so glad I've found your gallery today, your photos leave me longing to see more, you are a very talented photographer.
