Sobre o livro
This second Kamchatka wilderness photo book, documents scenery and plant life in the Bystrinsky Nature Park in central Kamchatka. This, the largest protected natural area in Kamchatka, preserves not only the natural landscapes and forests but also populations of rare and endangered plant and animal species. Though summer was fading into autumn, many flowers and fungi were found in forested areas in this remote area of the world.
The first and third books in the series (and digital PDFs) are titled 'South Kamchatka Nature Park' and ‘Tolbachik Volcanic Region’. Both are also published by, and available from, Blurb.
My partner and fellow photographer, David Young, and I live in Canberra, Australia. We have been exploring the world for many years, often to places off the beaten track. We enjoy meeting people, learning about different cultures, experiencing new environments and capturing the essence of people and places through our photography and videography. On our travels, we also enjoy discovering our family history, filming gardens and seeking out wildflowers. David is a horticulturist and has been a radio broadcaster and television presenter. I've spent a lifetime in education and enjoy my voluntary mentoring role with university students and researchers.
