Hometown Nature Photography
by Darren Huski | September 14, 2011

Some people live within a mountain range or at the doorstep of a national park. They have amazing scenery and big game right out their front door. I am not one of those people. I live on the flat of the south plains, and it is 507 miles to the nearest national park (not that I am counting).

Winter in Yellowstone
by Tom Vezo | March 1, 2008

It was still dark outside when we walked into the lobby of the Snow Lodge for a cup of coffee before breakfast. A few people were milling around discussing what the weather might be for the day. Weather is always the topic of discussion in the morning in Yellowstone National Park because it&#...

A Photographic Safari to Zambia
by Marijn Heuts | October 1, 2006

Often described as one of Africa’s last true wildernesses, Zambia had been high on my wish list of destinations for some years. After terrific self-drive travels through South Africa, Swaziland and Namibia, this year we finally exchanged the beaten tarred and gravel tracks of Southern Afri...
