Clouds in The Canyon


Clouds in the canyon,
brushing rock faces they have known
for a million years.

A Few Mosquitoes In Alaska

The time we spend in places—how long before their character, their spirit and secrets, are revealed? I have photographed the indescribable we call The Southwest in four separate years and am certain beyond any doubt that I’ve barely invested the equivalent of a few seconds there. Overwhelming, immense Alaska is, as I expected, no different, though I will measure my time there by another indicator.

If I can conjure
The Bear, the Sun, the Distance,
That will be enough.
