What I miss about yesterday’s nature photography. I miss the late Galen Rowell being at the center of the world of nature photography. I miss Leonard Lee Rue being an active wildlife photographer. His perspective on photography was different than all others. He could teach us all about our subjects. I miss being able to travel to great subjects and be alone, just nature and I.
What I don’t miss. Having to buy and develop film. Having only the telephone or snail mail as a way to communicate with other photographers.
All image were made on a tripod unless otherwise noted.
