A RIVER RUNS THROUGH IT
“Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world’s great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops, under the rocks are words, and some of the words are theirs. I am haunted by waters.” Norman Maclean
I made a calendar a couple of years ago and this was the image for January. Like many photos, the amazing thing is what is outside the frame. This photo was actually taken from a bridge on an industrial logging road.
I recently read a biography of Robert Redford. I was struck by his environmental consciousness. With his life story on my mind, the title was a natural – a river runs through it.
