New Exhibition

Eight of my photographs will be featured in a new exhibition at the Rapscallion Gallery in Bozeman January 11-February 26. There will be an opening reception on January 11th from 6-9 p.m. Note that Ben Blackwood, one of the other artists featured, is from established Blackwood family in the Bozeman area who have been here for several generations. He is nice guy from a nice family, but no relation to us renegade Blackwoods who’ve only been here a few decades.

POTD: Short-Timer

Cathedral Gorge, Nevada

The first day I was in Cathedral Gorge, it was experiencing a mix of rain and snow and also the last of water runoff from 6″ of snow it had received a week earlier, so the erosional forces that continually shape the place were in full evidence with muddy rivulets flowing out of all the drainages. That gave me the impression that this tree standing on the edge of the gorge would not be maintaining its commanding position that much longer. In reality, the area is quite arid so the rate of erosion in the soft bentonite clay is measured in inches or fractions of inches per year. So the tree has some time left to flourish.
