The Story Behind the Image

While exploring the Chilcotin grasslands, I came across this lone log cabin set amidst the most incredible scent of wild sagebrush. What a place to spend a night I thought to myself. The words quiet, peaceful, and still immediately came to mind. At first I thought it must have been a cowboy’s trail cabin, but no, it was a shepherds cabin. This shepherd travelled for dozens of miles up and down the Fraser River canyon lands between Lilloett and the Gang Ranch, tending his flock. I cannot think of a more idyllic life. The Spirit of a shepherd together with the Spirit of the grass travelling through time together. I will never forget making this image; it was a thought provoking experience.
