Frank Boyden Reading Tom Crawford's Poems

Frank’s reading of a number of Tom’s poems at the January 4, 2014 Artists Residency Reception was a wonderful addition to seeing the works of the artists in residence at Sitka Center for Art and Ecology in the Fall of 2013. David Armstrong, an writer in residence also read one of his short stories.

Sunset at Cascade Head

I wanted to return to the sunset of January 2, 2014 taken overlooking the Pacific Ocean and the Salmon River Estuary. I’m now back in Santa Rosa, California and it is a gray day and raining lightly. This image will brighten my day and hopefully yours, if you need it.

Making New Years Orange Boats

These orange boats were carved out, a wick added and salad oil added as fuel. They were then taken down to the Salmon River Estuary lit and launched after sunset to send out New Year’s wishes on the Salmon River.

Dazed

Dazed Hawk

This bird crashed into our large window yesterday morning. It sounded like a small sonic boom. I went out and started photographing the bird from as close as 140 cm. It took the bird about 10 minutes to recover, fly off and sit in a nearby tree. I’m not sure the species of this hawk but it maybe a juvenile Cooper’s Hawk. If you think otherwise, please let me know by commenting.
