Green Cay Wetlands
Preservation, Life, and Landscape
by George Quiroga
About the Book
Nestled amidst the suburbs of development, Green Cay Wetlands and its Nature Center offer a respite from the surrounding urban sprawl.
Here one can experience what the benefits of a wetland can be to both the community and to the wetland ecosystem. Green Cay is a habitat filled with various species of plants, birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, fishes, and insects.
This book is a collection of images photographed at Green Cay Wetlands and presented with George's artistic style. Included are beautiful and slightly surreal landscapes, avian and animal portraiture, and the abstract patterns of nature that hope to fill the viewer with a new sense of wonder.
Features & Details
George Quiroga has been involved with photography in one form or another since he first saw an image develop in his father's darkroom at the age of four. Photography is the way that captures how George views his life and the surroundings that make his world complete. He considers himself a freelance artist that uses photography as his primary medium and relishes that freedom to explore his vision without bounds. Major influences on his vision include his father's optimistic outlook of life and poetic artistry combined with his mother's talent for painting. George chooses subjects that signify beauty both in the natural world or man-made. George resides in South Florida but has traveled to interesting places in the world in search of inspiration, new experiences, and a unique image or two.
