On the Rogue again
"Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and cheer and give strength to body and soul alike."
Working hard these days on a few creative directions, and still pumping out clip art boxes for L&A. Yesterday I decided to take a break and hit the river with Dave, hard to believe we've only been out on the water twice this summer so far. The weather was so picture perfect, not a cloud in the sky, and only a few jet boats to rock our shorter than normal float.
Mallards, mergansers and egrets as usual but the highlight was after we had pulled out and were stopped on the road by a big old bull elk. It took a few minutes to pull my camera from the dry sack buried in back and snap a picture of him ambling off across the meadow. It was one of those 'you had to be there moments' the photo was only marginally interesting compared to the experience of having those two eyeballs staring through our front windshield.
Posting a slideshow of my favorite river shots I put together a few years ago.
