Portfolio # 5 - Goats and Sheep - Mountain Goats and Bighorn Sheep.
This book project contains 158 pages and a portfolio of 208 of my best Mountain Goat and Bighorn Sheep photographs created on Mt. Evans in Colorado, Yellowstone National Park, Glacier National Park and the Canadian Rockies.
This is a body of work spanning many years of creating the images for this book. In most cases, they were made under extreme conditions including 40-50 mph winds, bitter cold weather, very rough terrain and altitudes in excess of 14,130 feet.
The book is divided into six sections Mountain Goat Adults, Parenting and Young, followed by Bighorn Sheep Adults, Parenting and Young. There is a wide variety of behavior captured, as well as, great interaction between the parents and their young giving you a view of their lives from only a few days old through adulthood.
The locations provided spectacular
scenery for the settings and the text included will give you an overview
and better understanding of these majestic animals.
At this link http://www.blurb.com/books/1622378 you should be able to see every page and photograph included in this book. Please remember when reviewing the book that the photos are much smaller (compressed) than in the actual book so some images may look grainy in the preview but all images will look much better in the actual book. To see the actual quality of the images simply scroll through the Galleries on this website.
This is a Large Landscape (13 x 11 inches) hardcover coffee table book. The book is commercial quality featuring 4-color printing on premium 100-pound silk finished paper with durable library binding. The laminated 4-color dust jacket includes front and back flaps and printing on the spine.
The book is a relatively inexpensive way to enjoy a lot of my best work. All books purchased directly from me will be personally signed before shipping it to you.
Since this book is published on-demand, and can be printed one at a time instead of doing thousands of copies at once they are more expensive, however, that is the only way it is available.
Book $145 + packaging/shipping
