There is something about the land here that speaks to the soul. I can feel it on the River Trail and Petit Jean, Mts. Nebo and Magazine.
Someday, I hope my photographs will explore that feeling in the land of Arkansas.
I wasn’t able to do that this year. Not ready to try something that big.
Instead, I tried to do something a little simpler. A foundation, if you will.
You won’t see any sweeping vistas of the landscape; no hyper-focused closeups of wildlife. And only a couple super-saturated sunsets. I mean really, who can resist those?
My goal is not to have you “ooh and aah” over the near mystical beauty of the land in Arkansas; other photographers fill that bill, and do it better than I ever could
Instead, I tried to do capture scenes that you could step into. I hope for you to be able to pause, set your toils and trials down for a moment, and step into these scenes.
I don’t know that my photographs achieved that goal; I am very much still learning how to see what I see, first.
But give it a try.
Worst case scenario, you spend 5 minutes seeing our beautiful world.
