Russ Burden will present “Nature’s Gifts.” The show is a mixture of scenic and wildlife photos from his travels. Wildlife and landscape images are interspersed and vary in subject matter from macro shots of butterflies to grand scenics along the Oregon coast. Included are panoramas, large mammals, birds, landscapes from the South West along with many other of Russ’s favorites. The show is a twenty minute escape into the visual world of nature.
