I'm proud to announce that the following image won a honorable mention award in the 2012 ICP (International Conservation Photography) awards:
Rolling Hills, Production or Destruction?
Palouse, Washington June 2010
Rolling hills in the Palouse, a popular destination for photographers. BUT the monoculture agriculture there requires more and more fertilizer and pesticide use. The seemingly beautiful landscape is irrevocably altered with soil erosion problems among the worst in the US. As a photographer I want to capture the beauty but also raise awareness....Can we change the mindset and go back to a more sustainable agriculture before it is too late?
Please see the ICP winners gallery for more mind boggling images
