When most people think of Lake Tahoe, they think of the endless horizon of Big Blue. Drive a short distance from the Lake, though, and you’ll find landscapes like Colorado and Wyoming.
Russell Valley is a tight-knit community about 20 minutes outside of Truckee. Here, your neighbors might stop by for a visit on horseback.
I was luckily to get a chance to shoot in the Valley when the spring flowers were at their brightest. It was fun to visit a more rural setting so close to my home and capture these horsewomen in their element!
