North Platte River Sunrise


Hawk Buckman – Images of Nature
Limited Edition (Color Landscape)

On September 26, 2018, I made my way back to Nebraska from Colorado for the second time.  My first visit had only been two weeks prior, and I was determined to discover the landscape, and experience the sights and sounds of the Great Northern Plains.  I headed out, camera in hand, to Mitchell, Nebraska.  I turned south onto South Mitchell road. As you travel south you come to a bridge that spans the North Platte River.  The air was cold and damp.  As the Sun rose on the morning horizon heating the air mist, and fog, began to develop over the swirling water.  I immediately turned around and parked the car.  I walked to the middle of the bridge, fingers freezing, dodging passing trucks and cars, and made 4 handheld images.  Little did I know that a small farm was being obscured by the rising mist; completely blocking out the ugliness of a barn, and grain bin, on the north bank of the river.

This image holds a unique memory for me. It was a time in my life when I was questioning my future, my past and in some ways, my very existence. I’ve never seen the North Platte River look like this since; I’ve tried on many occasions, and it seems that this particular moment was meant for me to share with others, perhaps as a reminder that the morning always brings a new adventure.

This image can be viewed at the Gering Civic Center in Gering, Nebraska.
