Comment: "River's Surprise" depicts a white sturgeon, an endangered species of the Kootanie River in Idaho and Canada. The sturgeon had been so plentiful at one time that they were fished for a livelihood. In the past there were sturgeon measuring 16 feet pulled from the river. Their prehistoric looks and long life span make them an unusual fish. This is a humorous account of a sturgeon caught unexpectedly by a fly fisherman.

Natilus, Tennessee, USA * The natilus, a relative of the octopus is the only cephalopod to have an external shell. The asymmetrical shell, a true natural beauty, has fascinated naturalists, mathematicians and physicists for centuries with its perfectly proportioned spiraled shell. We can only hope to emulate its beauty if only for a fleeting moment in snow. * 2048 x 1536 * (576KB)

Knot Divided, Minnesota, USA * Can a divided knot be not divided? We start with the simplest possible knot: the overhand knot, also known as the trefoil or pretzel know, which we will then split lengthwise along the whole strand that forms the three loops. But there is a twist that may lead to surprises: the knotted strand is actually a triply-twisted Mobius ban! Thus the question: does our cut separate the structure into two pieces, or does it form a single, highly knotted, twisted strand? * 2048 x 1536 * (606KB)

Water Song, Brekenridge, CO, USA * It comes from the sky, on its timeless journey through our lives to the sea. Water - giver of life, carver of continents. We capture it for the briefest of moments and suspend it against the sky. We cast our fleeting form upon it, telling stories of dragons and other glories. Our vision is short-lived indeed, as it melts and resumes its journey downstream to the sea. And yet, in that fragile frozen moment, hearts are touched for a lifetim. Play on, ye minstrels of water! * 2048 x 1536 * (608KB)
