A Waltz Across West Texas

I received this email and thought it was worth sharing.

"Wyman, the photographer, used to live in the old jail in Benjamin, TX. The photo of the coiled rattlesnake appeared on the cover of a wildlife magazine in the 80's.

He said, there were times he crawled a long way on his belly to get a good shot of a wild animal.

The music is by Doug Smith. Doug is from Petersburg, Texas and lives south of town. Doug plays by ear- He cannot read music, but has many CDs.

A pickup accident left Doug paralyzed and he does not play anymore. Most of the pictures were taken in the rolling plains (cap rock to Seymour, the Fork, 6666, and Waggoner Ranches. There are some scenes in Palo Duro Canyon.

Please take a moment and view....I don't know if I've ever come across such a skillful combination of music and amazing animal and landscape photography.

The changes in the tempo perfectly compliment the scenery. It is simply a beautiful portrayal of our magnificent home state."

That was super awesome. I'm a Texan who relocated to OK, but still love West Texas. It truly is a world unto its own.

Thanks very much for that. I was at at airport in West Tx and a rancher flew in his C-182 to get gas and we were talking and he said it takes 110 acres per cow to raise.
