Go into the home of a Truckee-Tahoe local and there’s a good chance you’ll find Elizabeth and Olof Carmel's artwork capturing the rugged beauty of the Sierra Nevada. While the California-based photographers travel the world capturing natural landscapes with their high-resolution digital cameras, their iconic images of the Sierra, Lake Tahoe and Yosemite hold center stage at their 2,600-square-foot gallery in downtown Truckee. Elizabeth and Olof are each experts in their own right. Elizabeth’s book, The Changing Range of Light, Portraits of the High Sierra, is a perfect gift for anyone who has spent time in California’s high country. Olof has won a variety of awards for his photographs, many of which were inspired by his time as a backcountry ranger in Yosemite and other national parks. In addition to the couple’s art, the gallery includes framing services, sculpture, woodwork, glasswork, jewelry and furnishings.
