Sierra Magazine Article

This month's Sierra Magazine features a cover story on my photography. I sent them a copy of my book when it came out and they followed up with me to do a story on it, so I am very pleased with how it came out. My husband Olof and I are long time supporters of the Sierra Club. As people who make our living from photographing beautiful natural places, it is incumbent on us to support organizations like the Sierra Club. I'm sure many readers of my photoblog share the same philosophy. We are also supporters of our local Truckee Donner Land Trust and a number of other environmental organizations. We are lucky in the Western USA to have large wilderness areas  and National Parks - this is a major accomplishment of the USA and a wonderful gift to our generation. There are many places in Western Europe that have no concept of Wilderness, which is both a physical and psychological place. Anyone who has traveled in the backcountry of Alaska knows the amazing power of true wilderness - there is nothing like being part of the food chain to clear your mind! Here is a link to the Sierra Club Magazine: There is also a link to the article on that web page.
