In the last two weeks I have finally given up procrastination to complete the second and third artist residencies I did last year. The requirements were not very onerous, but I didn’t make it priority — now finally done. For Petrified Forest, this picture from the Blue Mesa area toward the southern area of the Park was selected by Park staff. Blue Mesa was definitely one of my favorites; the other being the Painted Desert behind the Painted Desert Inn.
For Big Cypress, which was actually in 2013 and my last residency, both the Park and I readily agreed on a sunrise picture of a palmetto coming out of the ground fog with a really fantastic morning sky.
