I will be one of the authors of Van Zandt County, Texas, showcasing and selling their works at Van Zandt County Authors Showcase. The event is held by the Friends of the Library, in lieu of National Library Week, this coming Thursday, April 16th, 2015, 5-7 pm, at the Van Zandt County Library, Canton, Tx. Open for public.
I’ve been observing and preserving the beauty of East Texas sky since I moved here, in Edgewood, in 2006. In 2012, I self-published my photography book, On the Edge of the Piney Woods, compiling the photographs of ever-changing Texas sky and the land’s natural beauty in four seasons. The sky and the land don’t stop amaze me with their ever-changing beauty and surprises, so I keep taking photographs of the same subjects. Like these views of one fiery sunrise in early winter in December 2013. The ray of golden sunlight caught my eyes through the kitchen window, as always, notifying me that a glorious scene was going to play out there in a few seconds. Without delay, I grabbed my camera and got out there in a crisp morning to capture it.

THE DANCING TREES
Photographs and Words
Photographs by Ine Burke
The Dancing Trees brings together nine photo essays capturing objects normally seen, and some unexpectedly found, in a rural farmstead and in old downtown Edgewood, Texas. It’s simply about the things that we treasure and respect. Care and love. Discover and research. Or just the things that we enjoy doing.

Words by Harold Burke
The words are inspired by Ine’s beautiful photographs, and by our simple life on the farm in East Texas with our wonderful daughter, Alafair. And our dog, Hank.
