Last night’s World Series, pizza and good company yielded a hot photo tip: there have been hundreds of deer in the alfalfa fields in Washoe Valley. To the locals, the alfalfa fields are a welcome landing patch of luscious green amidst the sagebrush, rocky tan earth and dry grasses that make up much of our Nevada landscape. Not actually a landing field but a working ranch, winter always brings hungry mule deer down to visit its fields and entertain us humans. So taking a page out of the ever inspirational Patrick Latter’s photo playbook, I got an early enough start to catch the early morning sunlight as it was making its way over the surrounding hills.
