“Shapes and Colors of our Southwest National Parks" is an exhibit of photography capturing shapes and colors of the National Parks and Monuments in Arizona and Utah taken during Great Falls photographer and author Dee Leggett’s tour to the area with her husband in May. The exhibit, Oct. 3-31, 2016 at the Great Falls Library, portrays the broad, dramatic vistas of varied shapes, as well as intense and subtle colors throughout these magnificent locations. Leggett said, “I never realized how many shades of red and brown and how many textures existed in rock, and the variety of light and clouds, sun and rain expands it even further.”
Leggett’s photographs were taken from the trails in Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, Zion, and Petrified Forest National Parks, as well as Wupatki and Cedar Breaks National Monuments in sun, rain, sleet, and snow. 2016 is the centennial year for the National Park Service (NPS) and Leggett has been contributing to the celebration.
Leggett and her husband Bob have visited more than 155 units of the National Park Service over the past 40 years, enjoying, learning about, and photographing the protected natural areas as well as the historical and cultural areas.
Leggett is a member of Great Falls Studios and has been exhibiting her photography for more than 10 years. Her exhibit will be part of the Great Falls Studios Annual Studio Tour October 14-17, 2016.
“Visions of Great Falls,” Leggett’s photo journal book of scenes and history of Great Falls, contains numerous photos of Great Falls, the National Park in our own backyard. Books are available. To see more of Leggett’s work, contact her at 703-861-3335 or DeeLeggett@aol.com
