About the Book
This book is a photographic essay on the desert and canyon scenery of Utah and Arizona. It describes the anthropology, geology, history and ecology of the area and captures the essence of the dramatic landscapes of the american southwest.
My background is in science teaching, ecology, education and health promotion. My passions are landscape photography and folk music. I have published widely in science, photography and folk music. I am now retired from Health Promotion in British National Health Service and as an advisor to The World Health Organization. My photographs have been published in numerous books and calendars including The National Geographic calendar and the Scotsman calendar. My landscape images can be viewed at www.photographsofscotland.com My images were shot with a Fuji GX 617 film panoramic camera and with a canon 5D Mark II digital SLR. Enjoy!
