The full life cycle of the Loon, this totemic, aquatic avian, comes beautifully and revealingly into our safe viewing, from the emergence from an egg through the maturation and adult life.
The photographs are truly so highly evocative of the peaceful settings that you will wish they were much larger, to live with and watch, unmoving, calling us to peace with a hollow, mournful long low hoot.
Feel the power of Mother Nature in each photo; relive these places and times, which are so quickly destroyed forever. Preserve our species memory with this collection of photographs taken at great pans with utmost care. The photographs in particular of this mighty bird slicing through silent waters, brings great peace and joy to a weary heart. Take your time inside this book, for we may never pass this way again.
As if the photos in themselves are not enough, the text comprehensively relates this avian life and the delicate, endangered, shrinking ecosystem it requires. Filled with authoritative and evocative quotes, the text studies this life stage by stage profoundly as well as any book upon this unique topic. The preface by Sigurd Olson is equally powerful and informative and well written.
As a photographer mainly of urban topics and creatures of the city of Ciudad Juarez, downtown, and not ever of Nature, I repeat these photos by Woody Hagge are matched in their silent beauty by the delicate technique which creates them, highly skilled technique which requires greatest care and equipment and resolute access to the sites.Page fifty one alone is something to enlarge to wall size and view every day, each morning, every evening for as long as you possibly can. And yet there are over 161 pages here, nearly all with images equally exquisite.
Find a copy of this precious book, a bargain, and keep it and get others for all who know you and ineluctably will steal it from you.
