Each day, the splendor of Izard County and its natural surroundings draws Ed Alexander's attention as he works to capture its beauty on film. From his studio atop Wildcat Mountain, Ed's photos tell a story of the rugged and sometimes delicate beauty of Arkansas. Images of dramatic vistas and intimate wildlife scenes contrast with photos recording the subtle changes of light and shadow on delicate leaves and flowers that appear in his work. Ed comments: "I, like so many, can easily get caught up in the grandeur of nature: vast sunsets or sweeping views. Often, however, the real beauty is in the smallest detail: a single leaf, water drops on petals. If I can take a picture that captures the joy that nature gives me, and with that image, express it to another, then I have accomplished my goal."
