    For all of you texas quilters

    Subject: A Waltz Across West Texas



    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!

    It is easier to be wise for others than for ourselves.

    Loved the land and most of the people. Hated the politics, ignorance, bigotry and out and out racism. Could not put Texas in my rear view mirror fast enough. The landscape could not make up for all the other things.

    Thanks for the link. I was born and raised in Texas and while we do have our faults, when you see this video we have much to be proud of, too.
