The Border. Rio Grande. Big Bend National Park, Texas, 1995

The Rio Grande, known in Mexico as Rio Bravo del Norte, spills out of New Mexico’s mountains and meanders through the Chihuahuan Desert, spliting the land into very different cultures, belief systems, and countries (none of which is visually apparent)…. And this is what it looks like. That’s Mexico on the left of the river, and in the distance.. This landscape technique of putting a representative object in the foreground and using the fairly stark background as context can render almost any scene well…Try layering your landscape scenes with different things to look at, varying distances from the viewer. It makes the image more interesting; and the story the photo sings richer and deeper.
