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 80s. 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 seen such fantastic use of music set to 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! In 2006 Wyman was featured at the Great Southwest Book Fair held in the El Paso SaddleBlanket Expo Building.
