ABOUT OUR PHOTOS
The photos on our website (unless otherwise credited) have been taken and generously donated for use by two talented Kalmiopsis Audubon Society members:
Photographer Lois Miller specialized in birds. When she was not working her day job, she was out with her camera, mucking around in marshes, scoping at the Port, exploring the lake and other local habitats --even getting down on her belly in the sand to get a great shot.
Lois’s photos were featured in an exhibit at the University of Oregon and in several galleries on the Oregon Coast, including the Point B Studio Gallery in Port Orford’s Battle Rock business district.
Her photos were published in a variety of publications including, Oregon Birds, the Oregon Birding Trails brochures, and in our own Kalmiopsis Audubon Society Storm Petrel.
She also placed in several national photo competitions, including one in Parade Magazine, Audubon Magazine, and another with the Great Backyard Birdcount.
We are very sad to report that Lois died on Jan. 13, 2016.
Tim Palmer is a writer and photographer who has written 25 books about the environment, rivers, and adventure travel in the Pacific Northwest and nationwide.
Most of his recent volumes combine writing and big displays of nature photography. His 2016 book Rivers of Oregon and his 2010 book Rivers of California showcase the magnificent waterways of those two states. His 2006 book, Rivers of America, and his 2008 book, Trees and Forests of America are a matched pair that present collections of 200 color photos each of these remarkable landscapes. Luminous Mountains: the Sierra Nevada of California is a 2008 photo book about that great mountain range; California Wild features stunning images of that state’s extraordinary wildlands; and The Columbia focuses on that great river basin of the Northwest.
Tim has won the National Outdoor Book Award twice, the Independent Publishers Book Award, the Director’s Award from the National Park Service, and many other honors.
He frequently gives slide shows to audiences nationwide. His books are available locally at Gold Beach Books.
