On Location: In Search of Cattails

BLOG: In Search of Cattails – Images by Art Wolfe

It sounds odd, but I have been looking specifically for cattails lately.  They make for beautiful layered shots of color and texture.

This past weekend I went out shooting with Libby and David, who orchestrate my workshops.  We headed out to Washington’s Sauk River, dodged the rain squalls, and got some lovely shots.

The Sauk is a tributary of the Skagit River and drains from the Cascade Range.  It has the reputation of being a great flyfishing river. It is also very, very wet.
The moss swells on the bigleaf maples and hangs in long wispy tendrils from the alders.

And then finally I found the cattails, standing tall and golden against red twig dogwood, with pale green forest beyond.

25th Anniversary of Outdoor Photographer

I am so honored to have my image of the Chamonix Needles  as the cover of Outdoor Photographer’s 25th Anniversary issue.

I have been working with Outdoor Photographer since its inception in 1985 and to this day it remains the finest publication of its kind, inspiring enthusiasts and pros alike to make better images.

Congratulations, OP!

Pakistan Needs Our Help

I have travelled in the Pakistan’s mountainous regions which have been hit very hard by the unprecedented flooding.  These trips were among the most fascinating and rewarding of my life—wherever I went, I was warmly greeted and received by the Balti peoples.  Life has always been exceptionally difficult for these people, and their struggle for survival has become that much worse.

It is important that people put their religious & political ideologies aside and do what is right.  We have so much.  Please donate to your favorite charity sending aid to Pakistan.
