Peter McBride has spent two years photographing the great river, paddling a kayak through its headwaters, flying in small planes over cities and fields, rafting through the Grand Canyon and using his own two feet to traverse the delta. In his career, McBride, who lives near Basalt, Colorado, has taken pictures in 50 nations on six continents for magazines, books and films, but he relished the chance to turn his camera on the river that fed his childhood home, a Colorado cattle ranch. “I never knew much about where the river went and where it ended,” he says. In his work, McBride depicts not only the extraordinary scale of the human impact on the river but also the considerable beauty that remains.
Some rivers flow underground through caves . Underground rivers form in places where there are lots of cracks in the rocks above, so that in rainy weather, the water runs downs and collects in small underground streams. Sometimes the underground water trickles or gushes out of the ground to form a small spring of water. In other places, where there are caves, the small underground streams run together to form a river. The river can sometimes run through deep wide underground caverns. While many underground rivers flow gently, some underground rivers flow fast and have rapids , particularly after heavy rain. Many underground rivers flow out through a cave mouth to become an ordinary river.
Upon seeing this film once again it appeared infinitely superior to me
time than the previous times I have viewed it. The acting is stunningly
wonderful. The characters are very clearly drawn. Brad Pitt is simply
superb as the errant son who rebels. The other actors and actresses are
equally fine in every respect. Robert Redford creates a wonderful period
piece from the days of speakeasies of the 1920s. The scenery is
beautiful of the mountains and streams of western Montana. All in all,
is one of the finest films made in the 1990s.
You must see this movie!
