Waters & words : a celebration of flyfishing

The landscape swells

“Place and experience become reciprocal touchstones, each authenticating the other. The landscape swells with the meaning of what has been lived there, and the shape of that living has, in turn, been molded by the place. The landscape no longer exists as a backdrop or setting but as a medium of experience, a material from which the occasion is fashioned, a character in the story of life” Ted Leeson, Jerusalem Creek.

  1. Great photo; neat stream. Leeson’s books are all thought provoking and enjoyable. If you haven’t read, Inventing Montana, try and get a hold of a copy.
