This simply beautiful animal & landscape photography by Wyman Meinzler, a Texas state photographer, is elevated to the realms of amazing when combined with a classic Doug Smith piano recital. The Doug Smith brilliance blends superbly with his banjo and fiddle accompaniment and times beautifully to the mastery of the photos with mood transitions perfectly arranged to the shifts in tempo.
Meinzler who used to live in the old jail in Benjamin, it is said,at times he crawled a long way on his belly to get a good shot of a wild animal. The photo of the coiled rattlesnake in this series is one such picture. That appeared on the cover of a wildlife magazine in the 80s.
Doug Smith’s music is from one his many CD’s. Sadly a pickup accident paralysed him so he does not play anymore. When he did this maestro musician played only by ear and did not read music.
The pictures were taken in the TX rolling plains, cap rock to Seymour , the Fork, 6666, Waggoner Ranches and Palo Duro Canyon .
