BUT, YOU ARE INVITED TO TAKE A LOOK AND TO COME BACK AND WATCH IT AS IT DEVELOPS
THIS MESSAGE WILL SELF-DESTRUCT WHEN THE PORTFOLIO IS COMPLETELY READY.


Big Bend is a paradoxical place.  So near, and yet so far.  Big Bend is about an eight-hour drive from our home in Portales, New Mexico.  Not so far as outdoor photo venues go. But, far enough that I haven't visited as often as I would like.  Even so, I love the place.  I've always liked the starkness of desert terrain (an acquired taste for most people).  And, Big Bend is all about desert terrain.

Among Big Bend's paradoxes are is the juxtaposition of the subject matter opportunities. There are boundless close-ups of desert flora and geologic features.  And, the desert vistas, featuring rugged mountains and canyons, are well worth the price of fuel to get down there.  During my visits, I am in a constant "lens change mode".  No sooner do I wind up a panoramic image capture, than I am putting the macro lens on for a cactus bloom portrait.

This is one of my newer portfolios for the gallery.  I'm prepping several new photographs that will be appearing in the near future.  Please come back now and then to see how this selection develops.

Enjoy the exhibit! ~φ~ Fred Stevens
