Went with some friends to the Great Salt Plains national park in far north west Oklahoma a few days ago. The salt deposits were left over from a pre-historic sea and continue to replenish when salty, very shallow groundwater continually evaporates depositing its salt on the surface. We went in hopes of finding some selenite crystals which result from the process, but there wasn’t much crystal action, and a local crystal hunter said that the continuing drought was to blame. So, we walked around and shot photos and played in the mud.
I recently got to shoot photos of the inimitable Lauren Zuniga, poet extraordinaire for the 30 Days 30 Photos Oklahoma promotion. We shot a lot of photos, and Lauren was amazing, even with all the junk I brought into her house. The first shot is the one we used for the promotion, and the rest are outtakes.
