By Ted Grussing
… the essential ingredient for life as we know it is water, that beautiful liquid that is essential to life of every kind on this planet … here a seasonal creek is flowing through an area in the NW end of the Painted Desert and it provides for the trees and vegetation that borders the creek … coyotes, puma, bobcats, rabbits and all manner of creatures depend on that tiny flow of water to sustain them. When the water goes away the creatures move on and back in earlier times, humans too would move on … crops would not grow, animals could not be sustained and neither could the humans.
The foot hills in the upper part of the image are quite high and the straight down perspective rather flattens them … think in terms of hundreds to thousands of feet. This is earth and natural abstract art.
An early night for me … Lake Pleasant awaits early in the morning and creatures not yet seen will visit us.
Have a beautiful day whilst enjoying life on this beautiful little planet. Everywhere you are there is beauty … seek it and you will find it … share it and smile, as life is good and oh so very short.

In addition to sales of photographs already taken Ted does special shoots for patrons on request and also does air-to-air photography for those who want photographs of their airplanes in flight. All special photographic sessions are billed on an hourly basis.
Ted also does one-on-one workshops for those interested in learning the techniques he uses. By special arrangement Ted will do one-on-one aerial photography workshops which will include actual photo sessions in the air.
