Buffalo River is next week, starting Sunday for ten days. I'll be staying at an area called Steel Creek which is at the west end of Buffalo National River in Arkansas. I hope to be able to photograph the redbuds while they are in bloom and to catch them at a time when they're bloom overlaps the dogwood bloom. At any rate it will be a great opportunity to do some new work and do some reading.
This is a photograph I did last summer when we were in the Pagosa Springs area. It is a portion of the upper Rio Grande River. The water was so violent it reminded be of the agitator in a laundry machine and was also turbulent; thus the title, a word that doesn't exist but probably should. The perch was very "dicey". One step either way and I go for a swim. One tripod leg slip and my camera does.

Virginia and I in Rocky Mountain National Park. It was cold, very, very, cold and windy. It was a great trip.
There was a boatload of snow and Estes Park has several really good restaurants. We also found a great Italian restaurant in Elizabeth, Colorado. A little out of the way if you're driving from Springs to Denver but well worth the 20 miles round trip drive.
Iwas notified, about two weeks ago that I have been selected to serve as an Artist in Residence for the National Park Service in Buffalo National River in Arkansas. The residency will begin around the 25th of March. I will be posting photographs here, from that residency, as well as at discoveredartists.com at photosocial.com and elsewhere. I am looking forward to this opportunity and to making some new photographs in an area that is completely new to me.
