Lands of the Pacific Northwestern United States
by James and Alison Henderson
A visual journey into some of the restful landscape of the Pacific Northwest. 34 full-color photographs of the Oregon Coast, Crater Lake, The Steens Mountains, Columbia River Gorge, and Central Oregon.
I work professionally in the world of scientific photography. In my free time, I return to the natural world to photograph quiet and simple things well defined by light. The circular swirl of a smooth landscape or placid water captivate me. Recently, I have also extended that focus to the human figure, seeking the graceful beauty of swirling smoothness and curving arcs. Both natural world objects and human are intriguing when seen in soft lighting or hidden in deep shadow.
