You've probably seen many photos of the recent Aurora Borealis on the social medias lately. It's very rare to have it happen so far south so there were tons of people out getting photos and posting. It's been a lot of fun to see and I've already sold about a half dozen prints of it on my new website, woohoo! I finally had time to work on a little video that I shot while out there on Friday night. I hope you enjoy this little behind the scenes look at the fun I was having. Thank you for watching and I hope you all are having a great day! Scott Thompson Scott Shots Photography www.TruckeeT ..read more

Your social media feeds are probably flooded with aurora shots from last night. I thought I'd add to it! lol. Here are a couple new photos I shot last night, here in Truckee, California. I had never seen the aurora before. I'll admit, I was laughing and yelling like a mad man. It was so incredible to see!!!! "Northern Lights over Truckee 1" My first location was above Donner Lake. "Northern Lights over Truckee 2" My second location was above historic Downtown Truckee, California. Not much to say, other than WOW!!!! Thanks for looking, and I hope you all are having a great day.

Yesterday was a lot of fun, at the Western Heritage Days event in Genoa, Nevada. An art gallery I sell out of, The Genoa Gallery, rented a large booth and had a few of us gallery artists bring extra work and exhibit there. It was a successful day! I had a few nice sales, including this big canvas print of a Genoa Bar photo. The Genoa Bar's claim to fame is that it is Nevada's "oldest thirst parlor". It's a very popular spot and this image has been a best-seller at the gallery - "Nevada's Oldest Thirst Parlor 1" I thought I'd share a few photos of the fun with you. Here's the buy ..read more

The Buttercup Wildflowers Are Blooming!

Well... I've got some pretty great personal news. About 5 years ago, I had a scary health incident that landed me in the hospital's ICU for a couple weeks. The doctors told me that I could never mountain bike or snowboard again for the rest of my life. It was too risky with the stent I had placed in an artery at the base of my brain. Last week, I had an appointment with my neurologist to review a recent MRI of my brain and it turns out that I have reached a place where I can now indeed get back to the sports I love most!!!! So, of course I immediately bought a new (used) mountain bike and yest ..read more

The Milky Way shoot Saturday morning was successful. But I also stuck around for sunrise, and that was a successful shoot too! The Milky Way shot is in my last post, and the sunrise photos are below. But first... I put together a little behind the scenes YouTube video, so you can have a bit of a look at the fun involved with this type of shoot. Also, I shot an Instagram Live video. I can't seem to download and share that, so if you're bored and would like to see the sunrise with me, here is a link to that: Instagram Live Video Okay, this first photo is actually of the sliver mo ..read more

New Milky Way Photo!

WOW!!! I was incredibly lucky to get this shot recently! I woke up at 2:30am on Saturday, 4-6-24, was at this spot a bit after 3:30am, and shot this photo just before 4am. Shortly after I got this "keeper" the clouds rolled in and the Milky Way was no longer visible. If I would have gotten up a little later, I would have missed the shot. Bonus, there was a cloud above Truckee and the lights of Truckee lit it up beautifully. Also, a car drove over Rainbow Bridge during the exposure which lit up the railing. The snow was reflective enough to become visible during the 20 second exposure. Everythi ..read more

New Reno Area Online Gallery Added

Gotta love Springtime! Yesterday, I was able to get down to Reno, Nevada and after running a couple errands, I headed to Downtown Reno with the camera. The trees are blossoming down there right now, and everything is looking incredible, everywhere you look. Shooting the Reno Arches with blossoms in the foreground has been on my to-do list for many many years. However, the blossoms don't last very long at all, and I always seem to miss the peak of the show. Not this year! My timing worked out perfectly, and I was able to get these two "keeper" shots. Both of these were shot handheld with the ..read more

Another "Cool" Morning at Donner Lake
Scott Shots Photography Blog

I went out for a short stroll with the camera and some turmeric tea this morning. The camera was almost left at home... But I'm glad I decided to grab it at the last minute, because of this cool scene! There was a thin layer of ice on Donner Lake here in Truckee, California. But in this small area, the ice had broken up and piled up, creating sharp looking, jagged pieces of ice that looked rather photogenic to me. So I set down the hot tea and went to work getting some cool photos! Shot with the Canon 5DR R and a 16-35mm lens, set at 16mm. The camera's ISO was 200, the shutter speed was 1/200 ..read more

I'm super excited about this... I officially launched my new website today!!!! www.TruckeeTahoePhotos.com It has been a lot of work, and I'll probably still work on the website more as I fine tune things. But it is live!

The puzzle was delivered to Los Angeles, but prints can be delivered anywhere in the world! Above is a screenshot of the website. Everything seems to be working great on my end ..read more
