Plumas National Forest hosts ‘Art in the Lobby’

The work of photographer and Plumas National Forest employee Thomas Honeycutt is on display in the lobby of the Mt. Hough Ranger District in Quincy.

While earning his degree in Forestry at Alabama A&M, Honeycutt found his niche in wildlife and macro photography — taking pictures, typically of very small subjects, very close-up with specialized camera gear.

He pursues both live-action outdoor sports and any other moments of opportunity that may suddenly appear during his travels, including a pair of muskrats hitchhiking on his kayak as he floated down the Tennessee River.

To date, the photos that Honeycutt considers to be the most impressionable for him are of the recent forest fires that he found raging in his own backyard in Quincy.  Local Feather Publishing fans were treated to his picture of the Quincy Volunteer Fire Department in a recent edition of the weekly newspaper.

His artwork can be viewed Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Mt. Hough Ranger District office located at 39696 Hwy 70, Quincy.

For more information about the art display, call Kathy Powers at 283-0555.
