Location Origin Story

This is a close-up of the slough or wetlands in the Cookeville Meadows National Wildlife Refuge located in western Wyoming. This slough formed when a meander was cut off from the main Bear River channel, thus creating this pond that accumulated fine over-bank sediment and organic material such as peat. This wetland or swamp environment is on one end of the oxbow configuration and continues to receive a flow of sediment from the main channel, creating this wetland marsh.

On the bottom right side of the image, there are tracks made by a variety of birds and animals such as elk, mule deer, and pronghorn that winter in and migrate through the area. This photo contains a vast variety of plant and microbial life, flourishing in this nutrient-rich wetland.

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.

Image Rarity

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.
