It’s exciting to see my photograph of the Roan Cliffs on the cover of LightHawk’s annual report! LightHawk is just a remarkable organization – skilled volunteer pilots flying conservation missions wherever they’re needed and a great, professional and accomodating staff always ready to plan the next mission. I’ve flown four LightHawk missions in just over a year to make images of the West from a landscape perspective. My first mission was featured here, and conservation pilot and photographer Chris Boyer was featured here. My Wyoming wind farm mission was on National Geographic Newswatch as an ILCP Tripods In The Sky mission and I flew over the “Two Sides Of The Roan” in July. Last month, I flew with LightHawk over the Absaroka-Beartooth Front as part of the Greater Yellowstone Coalition and ILCP Tripods In The Mud partnership that was also featured in NG Newswatch as “Thunderstruck“.
It’s been quite a year, LightHawk and I’m proud to be a LightHawk partner. I look forward to being a featured speaker at the annual Fly-In in Boise next month and continuing our work to protect important places in the West. Thanks for all you do!
