Sometimes, we photographers can act like a herd when someone finds a “new location.” Once found, it’s the hot spot for a year or two and then its off to the next “hot” location. Nelson is not “new”, but has been a “hot spot for a while.” See why.
Nelson is 40 miles southeast of Las Vegas and is easy to see on the way there if you are driving from southern California and is an easy day trip if you are in Las Vegas and have a car. I would not call it a ghost town or a junk yard, but it has qualities of both. It can be hot or very cold, windy, and crowded. If have seen many photographers there and sometimes none.
In December, it ended up being bitterly cold and windy. I think you can do justice to the whole place in 2-4 hours depending on how patient you are and how many subjects you can find. Here are some of our favorites.
Here is our first blog post about Nelson from last year.

I love the colors in these shots!
I’m crazy about all these images. I could spend hours just in that barn alone. Have to put this on my list. Nice work.
