Rabbitbrush Depot

Rabbitbrush blooms in late summer throughout the Great Basin, and assuming there’s been enough rain, the yellow bushy flowers carpet the land for miles.

There was lots of it here–even  between the tracks of the rail bed. It’s an unsung plant in the West, not nearly as celebrated as Big Sagebrush which grows in the same habitat. (Rabbitbrush is in the foreground of this picture, and Sagebrush is behind.)

  1. John, love the grey zones on this one and the rustique enrolling of the picture from front to back. Easy on the eyes. Reminds a bit like Vincent van Gogh’s brushstrokes

  2. One of my favorite desert plants captured in a beautiful black and white. It’s at its best in the second half of August and (I guess) September.
