Power and Grace

Wayne Pierce's avatar Wayne Pierce

Power and Grace is an image of the Rio Grande River in early spring as it flows through the Rio Grande Gorge in New Mexico. On the low road to Santa Fe that stretches south along the river from Taos, the water flows with great power and force as the tributaries just east of the Continental Divide send the winter melt south toward the Texas and Mexico border. While the power is evident in this photograph, there is also the presence of liquid grace, a gentle serenity that flows through the scene. Throughout our world, the movement of this most precious natural resource reminds us of the beauty and magic, the power and grace, that has blessed and sustained life throughout the history of our planet.
