THE INTREPID PHOTOGRAPHERS
KLAUS & JANE HENDRIX
We live at 10,000 feet outside the historic-mining-town-turned-ski-village of Breckenridge, Colorado in a forest of lodgepole pine. Nature is all around us. Most of the animals pictured in our Rocky Mountain Mammals and all the pictures in the Our Fox Family albums were taken at our house.
Over 70 species of birds have visited our feeders, no doubt attracted to our property by fresh water and over 800 species of flowering perennials in our gardens, many of which are depicted in our Mountain View Experimental Gardens albums.
For over 30 years we have hiked and camped in the mountains and deserts of the American West, preserving the memories of those activities in photographs.
Now, through the technology of computers and the Internet, we are able to share with you what we have learned along the way.
We began this photographic odyssey as backpackers, lugging our tent, cameras, tripod and multiple lenses on our backs to remote locations in the alpine tundra. Three decades later, we now camp in comfort in our 4WD Tiger motorhome and can still access remote locations and be alone with nature.
If you also enjoy camping, spend a few minutes in our Tiger Tales albums and learn about free campsites away from the "tourist scene".
As to our photographic equipment, Klaus uses a Sony Mavica 14X digital camera and can get "up close and personal" with a single flower. Jane's older photos were produced by her Pentax Super ME 35mm SLR camera until it broke down during an exceptional display of desert wildflowers in the spring of 2004. She now is using an Olympus C-770 Ultra-Zoom digital camera with 10X lens.
As we travel and camp throughout western North America, we photograph all the wonders of nature that we encounter - flowers, birds, animals, snakes, lizards (lots of lizards), insects, rugged mountains, quiet streams, waterfalls and snowfalls, and, of course, our Tiger RV.
We hope you will enjoy this virtual tour of the wonders of nature.
