Surprisingly, only two photography books about the national parks have been released for the NPS Centennial so far. I review both of them in this post, and explain why mine is different: http://qtl.us/1Tbl95f

Hey Guys!!! I got mine from Henry. My blank ATM card can withdraw

€2,000 daily. I got it from him last week Wednesday and now I have

€7,000 for free. The card withdraws money from any ATM machines and

there is no name on it, it is not traceable and now i have money for

bussiness and enough money for me and my 4 kids. I am really happy i

met Henry because i met two people before him and they took my money

not knowing that they were scams. But am happy now. Henry sent the card

through DHL and i got it in two days. Get one from him now. he is

giving it out to help people even if it is illegal but it helps a lot

and no one ever gets caught. The card works in all countries except

Philippines, Mali and Nigeria. Henry's email address is

Mangrove shores are not thought of as swimming areas, but there is much to see underwater, such as those mangrove roots and surface reflections in Biscayne National Park.

In the southern keys of Biscayne National Park, I was surprised to spot the largest angelfish I’ve ever seen, of all places below the root system of the mangroves!

Boca Chita Key is such a small island,. I wrongly assumed that it wouldn’t be home to a large mosquito population. Even though it was summer, I failed to pack the proper gear to protect myself from insects. Looking for nature subjects, I was eager to check out the trail that circles the island, but my companions declined to come with me. I realized later why when the mosquitoes swarmed me along the trail. In a panic, I photographed a few mangroves east of the campground area against beautifully backlit clouds, and then I ran back to the dock, having suffered what felt like hundreds of mosquito bites within a quarter of an hour.

Great Sand Dunes National Park is the second highest national park in the US by average elevation. Here is the view from the high point, Mount Herard (13,610 feet) looking at the dunes (7,520 feet). Denali is 20,310 feet but the lowest point in Denali NP is 240 feet.

I like how you can see a hint of the mangrove forest above this jellyfish in Biscayne National Park. 

If you live in Boston, note opening of "Treasured Lands" at the Museum of Science. Boston Globe write-up here: http://qtl.us/1qMjYjA

The southern keys in Biscayne National Park are an excellent place to explore the mangrove shores. Mangrove shores are not thought of as swimming areas, but there is much to see underwater by snorkeling.

In Biscaye National Park, the Keys to the north are solid, but
those in the south are penetrated by water, in the form of creeks, channels, and lagoons. They are an excellent place to explore the mangrove shores by boat.

Story
Tagline
Photographer, author of treasuredlandsbook.com featuring all US National Parks
Introduction
I celebrate the splendor and variety of the natural and human heritage through my photography.  Favoring clarity and truthfulness, I seek to convey the emotions and the sense of connection that I experienced in some of the most beautiful corners of the earth, with the hope that aesthetic appreciation will lift our soul and eventually lead to awareness and respect for our planet and its inhabitants.

I am known for being the first to  photograph each of the 59 US National Parks and also for my website http://www.terragalleria.com with more than 30,000 images from around the world  - one of the most visited of all individual photographer's websites (~ 500,000 monthly visits). Print sales and image licensing from that website are the sole source of income for our family. 

My photographs have been published in more than 30 countries, in every possible media, and in two large photo books under my name: "Beautiful North America" (2007) and "Spectacular Yosemite" (2011). They have been the subject of museum and gallery solo exhibits on both US coasts. I have been profiled in more than a dozen press articles (eg, Boston Globe, National Geographic Explorer, Parks Magazine, Outdoor Photographer), and featured as a character in Ken Burn's film "The National Parks, America's Best Idea" (2009).
