I think Gary Randall said it best:
“As landscape photographers we are also documentarians of nature. Many of the scenes that we photograph are fragile and could change or be completely gone with no notice.”
Taking that into consideration, why not resurrect the man and nature category with an emphasis on environmental photojournalism. Yes, David, I understand your position on an apolitical approach on the site, but to me, that eliminates an important aspect of nature photography. The recent set of images taken in the Columbia Gorge by several members prior to that Eagle Creek fire demonstrate a need.
Thanks for reconsidering…
