The International Photo Fair at Bièvres, France



Bonnie Rannald Brings the Southwest to France 

For the second year, I am honored and excited to exhibit my Southwestern photography at the 50th Bièvres International Photo Fair on 2 June 2013 in Bièvres, France.  Again, I will also be sharing Booth 50 with France's photographer, Lyza Sahertian, Ambassador to the European Capitol of Culture Umea2014.

 


 The International Photo Fair was created in 1964 by the Photo-Club of Paris-Val de Bièvre and is organized by the city of Bièvres, which is just 9.34 miles (15.03 kilometers) from Paris.  With over 300 exhibitors, the largest photography event in France attracts thousands of visitors, collectors and photographers who share the love and interest of the photographic arts.

Included in my scenes of the Southwest for this year's Photo Fair will be images of the bigger than life moon rising over mountain peaks and canyons, as in "Full Moon at Watchman's Mountain ".




Other scenes include the colorful reflections in calm streams that provide a refreshing oasis to life in the desert.
 


And as a tradition to the Southwestern United States, I have also included images of Nevada's wild horses running free across the range.

With my Nikon and tripod, my goal is to recreate the scene as it appears in nature, to preserve in a photographic image the awesome, yet simplistic beauty of the scene that waits around a bend or over a hill. Sometimes it's a colorful landscape, and many times I'm allowed in the presence of the numerous creatures that adapt to life in the wild.

Hawthorne's Memorial Rose Garden


Remembering Family and Friends in a Garden Setting



The small town of Hawthorne Nevada, located within the Great Basin Desert, USA, has a special treasure which happens to be the largest memorial rose garden in the state. 




 With an elevation of 4255 feet (1296.92 meters) and surrounded by mountain ranges, Hawthorne has a mild climate that allows the roses to bloom in profusion.




The Memorial Rose Garden was developed in 1963 and today has over 900 different species of roses that are grown in memory of family or friends.




The Memorial Rose Garden is maintained by volunteers from the local community and funded through public donations.




Located on First and A Street, by the Mineral County Public Library and close to Mount Grant General Hospital, the rose garden invites one come and relax or meditate while enjoying the serenity of nature.
