I am a big admirer of Jed Henry’s art and all that he has done to sustain and spread the craft of traditional Japanese woodblock printing. I have been meaning to contact him about doing a print for our show for a while now, and also just to tell him how much I love his work. So I am overjoyed that he chose Avatar as the subject for one of his wonderful reinterpretations, the third beautiful image here. So cool! Thanks, Jed! I hope we connect soon.
The National Parks #35: Wind Cave, South Dakota
Another underrated park in the Dakotas, Wind Cave is probably the National Park that you’re most likely to see wildlife. This is also one of the smallest National Parks but the animals and scenery are abundant. Prairie, hills, forest and red desert can be enjoyed above ground, then the calcite formations called ‘boxwork’ will fascinate you below. When visiting nearby Badlands or Mount Rushmore it would be a mistake to skip this park. I’m pretty happy with these photos, because it’s not easy to photography caves or plains.
