    That was one of the things Heather used her Hasselblad for back in the day. She had a "Landscape Photography" book published many years ago. More interesting than much of Saint Ansel's work IMHO; now watch for the lynch mob a-coming! ;)

    Lovely stuff. I've bookmarked her for further exploration. Here's another fine American talent whom I had the pleasure of meeting at his gallery in Jackson Hole last year:

    I think her images are fantastic, I had forgotten how good she is...although I'm not sure the scanning etc shows them up at their best.

    Browsing around I found this...

    of a snow leopard...
    ...this is the beastie that was so rare that the National Geographic team could not get pictures without resorting to trap cameras....judges in the next Wildlife photographer of the year comp take note!

    Ah, yes. The story behind that is the beastie was being released into the wild, so not quite as far removed from trap cameras as you might have hoped. Still a fabulous capture though - taken on a Hasselblad IIRC.

    There's another of Heather's pictures which has stuck in my mind (though sadly it's not on her site) of a bird - a tern of some kind I think - hovering above her, which she took whilst photographing plants with a macro lens. Sensing something behind her she turned round and shot the image by instinct. :)

    I note that Heather names the recording media that she uses - just as though it's film, with its variety of tonal variations. I appreciate that a fast card is necessary to keep up with the high burst rates of some bodies, but apart from that, a byte is a byte etc.

    Heather Angel is a charming and thoroughly enjoyable speaker too. If you haven't been to one of her talks, I thoroughly recommend it.
