His nature photography will amaze you. The intimacy of the photographs reveals a personal side of wildlife. His understanding of animal behavior helps to deliver great photographs and an emotional connection.
Bill is a master of understanding lighting in the landscape, and his images provide a perspective only achieved with many days of photography and a deep understanding of light. I've spent more than 50 days over the past two years photographing the Smokies, and this is a book that I bought for the wonderful images. The text provides interesting reading about the history of Cades Cove and the people who lived there.
This book is as close to being in the real life Cades Cove as you can get. The wildlife, the old cabins and barns, the fields, right down to the leaves falling off the trees, if you have ever been there, you will feel like you are back as you look at the photos and read the text that accompanies it. I was lucky enough to catch Bill Lea when he was at a book signing in Townsend, Tennessee a couple years ago and purchased a couple personal autographed copies.
Thank you Bill for such an outstanding book! (When can we expect another one?!!!)
The art is second to none. The moods, the expression and the beauty are just overwhelming. How the artist captured these are truly mind boggling. You could go a thousand times and not see the unbelievable scenes he has captured in his camera.
I just can't find the superlatives to actually describe this book....so see for yourself.
Bill Lea's book provides a "vacation" to the Cove in great photos. There are some great historical pieces included as well. He is one who truly knows this place and can provide the intimate details that bring it back to life. Of course, his photos in these books and his calendars are wonderful.
