Photographing a free range buffalo with a wide angle lens may not have been my smartest decision but it turned out OK. There are about 650 of them in the Wichita Mountains.
Near the entrance of the Wichita Mountains is the vintage cobblestone resort town of Medicine Park.
I photographed these youthful swimmers there last summer.
I used a fake through the lens technique to suggest the 1940's when this area was known as the "Jewel of the Southwest".
This is from the Quartz Mountains which are the westernmost extension of the Wichita Mountains.
The tallest here is 2040 feet. At one point these mountains may have reached 20,000 feet before the long ages of erosion have left them at their present height.
