Many Rivers to Cross

Photo taken by Jim Work, who has struggled with depression for much of his life. It was taken at the beaver pond near Rio Grande Campground in Big Bend National Park, Texas.

About this photo: I made this photograph in the late afternoon after taking a nice hike. I love finding images that work as analogies to the things I encounter and have problem with, i.e. bridges, change…I have battled depression for a lot of my 63 years. I used to self medicate with alcohol, pot, coke, speed or whatever would alter the perception of reality. I now use prozac and photography to try and stay up. It works for the most part.

  1. Seems like you caught this just at the right time. The lighting is gorgeous. So’s the shot. I’d love to see this from various angles and how the light plays off the water
