Bear River Slough
Location Origin Story
This is the slough or wetlands of Cokeville Meadows National Wildlife Refuge in western Wyoming. A slough can form when a meander gets cut off from the main river channel creating an oxbow lake that accumulates with fine over-bank sediment and organic material such as peat.
This wetland or swamp environment (such as shown in the image above) is on one end of the oxbow configuration and continues to receive flow from the main channel, creating a slough or as in the case of the Cokeville Meadows, a wetland marsh.

About This Photograph
This green scene was photographed in the early afternoon during the month of May while Zedekiah was flying and exploring the Cokeville Meadows National Wildlife Refuge.
The image was taken from a moving aircraft, as Zedekiah piloted the aircraft while simultaneously operating the camera.
Zedekiah used the overhead clouds to provide a shadow, where timing and being in the place-in-space for this scene to reveal itself was crucial to this image composition.
Lastly, it is impossible to simply walk up a trail and take the same photograph again. This image was very difficult to create, and is truly one-of-a-kind, therefore making it extremely rare.
This image is offered as a numbered and signed, limited edition of one hundred (100) prints.
There are two (2) artist proofs available. one (1) as a volumetric print and one (1) as a satin metal print.
