The magnificent mountain backbone of the Sierra Nevada divides the West into divergent environments. The Western Divide. The land to the west is governed by the Pacific with lush rolling hills, oak woodlands, verdant forests and long grass meadows. The land to the east lies in rain shadow with arid sagebrush deserts cut by ancient drainages and framed by jagged peaks polished smooth by eons of water and swift dry air. These divergent environments are the great contrast of the West. Arid and Drenched. Bare and Lush. Jagged and Rolling. Spare and Plentiful. Vast and Delicate. Brown and Green. Orange and Blue. Bristlecone and Redwood. Saguaro and Ponderosa. Ocotillo and Oak. Sagebrush and Grass. Deserts and Forests. Mesas and Meadows. Canyons and Valleys. David Moore captures the grand duality of the Western Divide in this Photographic exhibit at Nielsen Arts.
