Wyman Meinzer is the photographer. He once lived in the old jail in Benjamin, TX. The photo of the coiled rattlesnake appeared on the cover of a wildlife magazine in the 80s. He said there were times he crawled a long way on his belly to get a good shot of a wild animal. And the music is perfect. It was a pleasure to see so many living deer with such amazing antlers. These old fellows have been around a long time to grow horns like that.
The music is by Doug Smith. Doug is from Petersburg, Texas. Doug plays by ear - He cannot read music, but has many CDs you may want to buy. A pickup accident left Doug paralyzed, but fortunately he has learned to play again. Most of the pictures were taken in West Texas in the rolling plains (Caprock to Seymour), the PitchFork, 6666, and Waggoner Ranches. There are some scenes in Palo Duro Canyon.
Take a few moments and view and listen. I doubt if you'll ever see such fantastic use of music set to amazing animal and landscape photography. The changes in the tempo perfectly compliment the scenery. It is quite simply a beautiful portrayal of the state of Texas.
