For various reasons, cultures, landscapes, and species on our planet are quickly disappearing. This is no secret. “Preservation,” “conservation,” “endangered,” and “extinct” are words in our daily vocabularies. Many of us dream of learning about or experiencing the world’s endangered phenomenon before their secrets are lost forever, preserving now what still exists before all hope is gone.

Art Wolfe has a very appropriate title. A photographer, he has been capturing images of the world’s “fast-disappearing wildlife, landscapes, and native cultures” for over thirty years. His goal with his photographs is “to win focus for conservation issues by focusing on what’s beautiful on the Earth.”

With the estimated one million images he has captured in his lifetime, and his over sixty published books of photographs, it would be difficult to deny him some measure of success from the beginning. But, his stunning photos speak for themselves.

Clean lines, crisp colours, and sharp contrast are features which make his photographs stand out. They seem as though they are posed, or fabricated images. In fact, one might say that the Earth has become gentle toward him and has shown him her best sides. Of course, it could simply be the result of practice and experience. Wolfe has shot photos on every continent, literally hundreds of locations, over the past three decades. His photos have a certain level of abstraction, but they are bold and easy to interpret.

See for yourself. A multitude of prints of his photos are available to view on his website, or to purchase from his store. Otherwise, his books are widely available online or in bookstores. He also has a thirteen-episode television miniseries called “Travels to the Edge,” which is distributed by American Public Television.

    I was a 3 pack-per-day smoker for nearly 40 years. E-cigs have allowed me to quit smoking for the first time in my life. I feel better than I have in years! My doctor says my lungs are clearer than he has ever heard them. I thank God daily for these devices!

    PlayStation Phone – No internal memory? That seems kind of weird since I doubt this thing will use UMD. Also, isn’t the PSP2 coming out next year? Will they make a PSP Phone 2? I’m kind of skeptical on this one. well, i can’t edit…but i wanted to add this. i wont be surprised if sony adds some type of adapter add on to the PS3 (something to support the IR blasters, and maybe a small unit within that add on that has more RAM) so it can support google tv. It would make so much sense for sony to be even more of a presence in the living room, other than what the ps3 can already do. If google tv ends up working out all the kinks, and getting better…i wouldn’t be surprised. On top of that being a selling point (a huge one) over the Wii and similar to the Xbox integration w/ att uverse, you’d be able to get the PSP phone and the ps3 to work all buddy buddy together. the possibilities are endless if you ask me. This would be called product synergy sony…listen to me

    Is there any way to subscribe to this post? I’d like to be updated on the comments here as they come in. I’ve always been somewhat of a debater and I’d like to hear other’s opinions on this issue.

  • dog grooming

    Hello. I just wanted to pop in and comment on the design of your blog. Don’t take this the wrong way, but it’s too loud. It’s doing way too much and it takes away from what youve got to say – which I think is really important.

  • dog grooming

    I was chatting with my friend on MSN about this and I’ve got to say that I completely agree with the poster near the beginning. And on a side note, I really like the colors you used for your blog. What theme is this?

  • buy true religion jeans

    You made a few nice points there. I did a search on the subject matter and found most people will consent with your blog.

    Hey! It’s like you understand my mind! You seem to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you can do with some images to drive the content home a bit, but other than that, this is informative blog post. A good read. I will definitely return again.

    The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

    The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  • frank kern scam

    Sorry for the huge review, but I’m really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.
