A book that I’ve been working on for some time has changed shape and titles over and over for the last few years. The current working title is given as the title to this blog post, Seasons Along a Mighty River. The constant theme has been the way the earth changes throughout the year in the Missouri River Valley.
In the days of January there are moments on either of the sides of a storm that immerse us in the solitude of winter. Certainly, the quiet after a snow fall is a treasure. But, there is a peace that reigns before those icy events. “The calm before the storm” is a bit of a cliché, however I believe that these images are exemplars of that kind of experience.
These images are both set in a meadow in the Missouri River Valley. “Before the Snow” is offered as as a numbered Limited Edition of 20, printed on 13×19 archival paper using pigment based inks. Each signed numbered print is $220. “A Lonely Cedar” is available in all print sizes and surface options.
