Once a year we head for Dubois, WY so that my wife can attend the Susan K. Black art conference. It is a week-long event with an attendance of about 175 artists from around the country. The instructors are among some of the countries best known, but I come to enjoy our camping out in a lovely nearby campground along the Wind River. For us, it has become an annual event. 

The subject matter varies from high plains desert to scenic mountain vistas along the Wind River Range to the Grand Tetons on the western side of the range. This is a simple composition with a nice patch of sage brush in the foreground.

This particular image is one which I have been watching from the campground for several years, but have been unable to capture it because of bad weather or bad timing. This morning I took a chance and headed across the river to a spot that gave me the best visual advantage. Frankly, I did not have a good alternative site but this worked out just fine.

It is a simple landscape in terms of composition, but it has been one of my favorite views of the painted rocks for some time. Enjoy!
