Sobre o livro
This is the first of a trilogy of Kamchatka wilderness exploration photo books. It documents the flora and landscapes around the Mutnovsky, Gorely and Vilyuchinsky Volcanic areas in the South Kamchatka Nature Park, Kamchatka Peninsula, East Russia. Flowering plants were found in four very different environments; by the roadside, by a small stream, on the grassy, rocky slopes of Mutnovsky Valley and on the plateaus below the volcanoes. Photos were taken in late summer.
The second and third books in the series (and digital PDFs) are titled ‘Bystrinsky 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.
