Nature In Depth

    Taken literally, photo-graphy means light-writing. A photo is an attempt to tell a story with light. The story could be so many things: a fishing eagle, a sleepy bear, the break of sunrise through morning mist. And the photographer's art is to capture that story in a paragraph of perfect light, at the critical dramatic moment, in a carefully composed phrase of frame.
