Our Mother Earth, precious, beautiful, glorious, fragile, abused, stressed.

The tradition of landscape photography is one of beauty and majesty, the reality of landscape is so much more.
In man’s exploration of the universe we can find no peer, our Mother Earth is our most amazing and only home.
Our Mother Earth is unique and strong, the host of life and the secrets of nature, and she is currently in distress.
Show us wonder and show us disdain, show us beauty and show us decay. For Mother Earth, show us reality.
