Darren and his wife Jessica, recently returned from a hiking trip to Arkansas. Being a fellow photographer, and having a keen eye for landscape photographer, it was exciting to see the images Darren captured while there. It was in the Ozarks of Arkansas, when I was 14, that I first saw true mountains. The only thing I could think about as we drove through, was how fun it would be to ride a road bike up and down the long stretches of road winding through the range. While later on I did pursue bicycle racing, I never did realize that dream of riding and racing in the mountains.
Darren’s photography of the Arkansas mountains captures all the beauty and magnificence that I remember as a young kid, but on a much grander scale. He has the ability to locate amazing scenes and the patience to wait for the opportune time to capture his images. Take a moment to hop over to his blog post on the recent trip, and then browse his galleries for some incredible images.
