Ben Greenberg is an award-winning photographer and an avid environmentalist who takes great pride in capturing images of the natural beauty of his home state. Deane Dozier is wildlife photographer and an outdoor writer with three books to her credit and a longtime, firsthand knowledge of Natural Virginia."Natural Virginia" divides the state into three regions: the Tidewater, Piedmont, and the Western mountains and valleys. The images in each, whether of a great blue heron emerging from river mists or of an almost leafless autumnal tree on Skyline Drive, convey a sense of grandeur while simultaneously inviting the viewer in to the intimacy of the settings, as though one might be able to smell the musk of the salt flats or to feel the brush of the fall wind. The photographs highlight the wide-ranging diversity of the Commonwealth's national and state parks, wildlife refuges and management areas, their rivers, lakes, mountains, and wild creatures. Deane Dozier's introductory essays to each region offer further insight into the geography and geology of Virginia.
