Jim Brandenburg

Back in 1998, I had come down from a long spell in the woods and was partaking of one of the pleasures a city has to offer: large bookstores. I came across a magical volume called Chased By The Light by Jim Brandenburg. The premise was intriguing. Mr. Brandenburg roamed the area around his home bordering the Boundary Waters in northern Minnesota between the Autumnal Equinox and Winter Solstice and took one picture per day. Just one.

Later I saw that he had a second volume, Looking For The Summer, again in the same locale, but this time between the Summer Solstice and the Autumnal Equinox. This time though he didn’t impose upon himself the limitation of one analogue photo, but took a bunch of digital photos and saved just the one he liked best. 

Both books were awe inspiring and nature photography at its finest.

You can peruse these gorgeous photos (and many others) on his website. I can’t provide a direct link to them, but on the top right, under View Gallery you will find them. 

A little visual treat for your enjoyment.
