In Landschaften zwischen Himmel und Erde porträtiert er Natur rund um den Globus und schafft ein Werk, das uns Seite für Seite ins Staunen versetzt.

Snowy Owls

BLOG: Snowy Owls January 2012 – Images by Art Wolfe

We had a few days of fairly clear weather in the Pacific Northwest, so I decided to head back up to Canada to photograph snowy owls. The light did not disappoint & I was able to get much better shots than I got in December. This large gathering of migrating Snowy Owls happens about every ten years.

Wood Ducks and Sand Hill Cranes are year-round residents of the George C. Reifel Migratory Bird Sanctuary in British Columbia. They can’t help but get my attention when I visit.

The Serengeti was great for the first day but then pretty quiet for two days. As you can see, I’m experimenting with color renditions.

Philip Hyde: Messages from the Wilderness

Philip Hyde from Lumière on Vimeo.

Philip Hyde has shown what can be done via photography to shed light and awareness on our precious natural resources.
Celebrate his life and look for his show now on view at the Lumiere Gallery in Atlanta. Watch the video to get a glimpse of his message.

I regularly support conservation and environmental awareness issues through the medium of photography. We all need to get the word or image out to the public in order to influence change and/or preservation. This is the right kind of propaganda.
