This is a photography guide - and so much more. While photographers can make the most of Robert Castellino's knowledgeable advice to help them take extraordinary photographs, this is an excellent book for nature-lovers and travelers, too. With 118 color photographs and an oversized, pull-out map marking each of the magnificent sites, you'll know how to get to the locations, have information about the area and its history, and get specific tips on how to photograph each setting and situation. It's also perfect for those who just want to enjoy Colorado's multi-season beauty through the glorious photographs - and dream of visiting the locations someday...

Photography is a means for Robert Castellino to express his deep love of nature and the state of Colorado. Robert is a master nature photographer, book publisher, story teller, speaker, founder of Whispering River, and a longtime resident of the Boulder area. His adventurous spirit often finds him deep in the Colorado wilderness before the sun is up - and out there still as the sun sets.
Although Robert has been a professional photographer since 1988, he also considers himself a lifelong student, always working to perfect his craft. One of his many teachers is Sam Abell, noted National Geographic photographer. Robert is a teacher himself - through his lectures and workshops, and having taught at the Music and Arts Conservatory of Santa Barbara. He's also produced various multi-media shows performed by the Colorado Music Festival Orchestra and the Rocky Mountain Sierra Club.
Robert's breathtaking photographs are a result of both swiftness and patience - quickly setting up shots, then waiting for the ideal conditions or moments in order to capture his beautiful and dramatic images (sometimes waiting for hours for the perfect moment!). Robert's goal is simple, yet profound: to share the beauty of the natural world and the wonder of life through photography and storytelling.Review:
"...even non-photographers can enjoy! Castellino discusses technique, lighting, etc., but there's plenty of historical and geographical information, too." -- Clay Evans, Books Editor, Boulder Daily Camera
