Click to preview IMPRESSIONS OF SPRING Wildflowers of the West on Our Public Lands photo book

This is our sixth edition of this "work in progress" (now including Washington state wildflowers) for an upcoming nationally published book. For now enjoy a portfolio of 101 western wildflower images created by photographers Rob Badger and Nita Winter over the past 15 years while they have traveled on our public lands. These series have been made in the deserts of the Southwestern USA, the mountains of California and Colorado and in Rob and Nita's "backyard" in the coastal hills north of San Francisco.

Rob, an internationally awarded nature and environmental photographer, has focused on capturing the essence of the land, as well as, intimate portraits of individual plants and flowers.

Nita, an internationally recognized people photographer, has joined Rob in the field to photograph flowers while they are still attached to the plant using natural light only.

Their collaboration has resulted in this unique and varied series of wildflowers found on our public lands in the Western US during our extended growing season from February to October.

This is a beautiful book. I love what you do with the black and white backgrounds. I do black backgrounds, but haven't figured out white backgrounds that look like yours. I live in Hawaii and have done three books on flowers and plants. Please check them out if you like. I am a seventy one year old art and photography teacher and keep very busy with the came. I was most likely born with a camera in hand.
