I have photographed along this stretch of river countless times, spanning all four seasons and in a variety of light conditions. It is one of these sacred places that offers sanctuary and respite from thinking…a place for staying in the present moment, without judgment. During this fall season, the rains change the river, along with the falling colored leaves and pine needles, moment by moment. Come winter, ice formations are altered just as rapidly, coming and going with temperature changes and snowfall. One of those rare places where you can photograph over and over and always find new images that grab your right brain and demand attention and a click of the shutter.
“In Peru," said Gonzalo, "they cure madness by placing the madman next to a flowing river. The water flows, he throws stones into it, his feelings begin to flow again, and he is cured.”
