From the April 2006 Conservationist
By Mark Bowie
"To me, nature photography is an optimistic pursuit of beauty, a passionate journey. I'm forced to look inside myself for what truly moves me. Though I let my instincts lead me, nature routinely puts more creative possibilities on the palette than I could have envisioned. That's life-affirming and enriching."---Mark Bowie
