I purchased this book because I love photography and birding and I live in the area of Virginia where some of the photos were taken.

I have to say I was blown away, and I'm a veteran photographer who remembers shaking tanks to process both black-and white and color film. We would await those wet, sloppy negatives and peek at them dripping as we hung to dry before cutting them into strips to fit neatly into plastic sleeves. And that was just a few years ago!

This book is beautiful in every sense. It captures the beauty and rich diversity of wildlife and scenery in Virginia and nearby areas, but it is also artfully designed and laid out. It is a pleasure to hold and to enjoy each page.

I'm very impressed also by the quality of the printing and reproduction. The photos snap right off the page and come to life.

I wish I could shoot like this guy.And I wouldn't mind owning that artillery cannon of a lens he has in his portrait either, but then again I guess if I could shoot like him I could afford the lens.
