Blue Evening At The Keeper Of The Plains




Blackbear Bosin’s The Keeper of the Plains, located at the confluence of the Big & Little Arkansas rivers in the heart of my home town, Wichita, Ks.   The sky looked interesting this particular evening so I drove down to the Keeper and loitered about.   After getting soaked by a brief rain shower, things started to improve.   I have some images with more dramatic clouds, but I really liked the deep blue evening sky color in this one, contrasted with the artificially lit sculpture.   There are a lot of power lines in the area, along with a couple of tall suspension bridge towers (interesting subject for photos as well) so it is sometimes a challenge to frame the sculpture to exclude all those things.

  1. This is a beautiful sculpture and I remember you featured some shots of it a while back. You were blessed with great light and the spot light on the statue is perfect.

  2. Of course, shots like this wouldn’t be possible without the genius of Blackbear Bosin. The Keeper is 44 feet tall, and standing atop a tall rock base, so it is virtually impossible to photograph where our rivers meet without having the sculpture in there.
