Об авторе

I am originally from the UK and am now a resident of the Snowy Mountains in New South Wales, Australia. I have been a regularly published writer and photographer for many years with many articles published in Australian Photography, Australian Camera and Better Photography (Australia). My work has appeared in well over sixty publications, mainly in Australia and the UK. I also founded and edited The Black and White Enthusiast magazine when I represented the UK publisher Creative Monochrome in Australia. This magazine was eventually sold and has since become Silvershotz. I also wrote a column on freelancing for the UK magazine F2 Freelance + Digital and have interviewed a number of leading photographers including Charlie Waite, considered the doyen of landscape photographers in the UK. I have qualified as a Licentiate of the Royal Photographic Society (LRPS) with a panel of black and white prints and am a former member of the Australian Society of Authors. My photographs are licensed through Alamy for use in publications. I am a former editor of the Journal of the Australian Photographic Society. I am happy to do my best to answer reader's questions (d.bigwood@bigpond.com).

Introduction

When nature is left to her own devices, she seems to survive very capably. In the many places on this earth where humans have never, or only rarely, ventured, animal and plant life has managed to continue to exist. In fact, it is the human animal who has caused most of the problems that have resulted in major headaches for this planet.

Because of our intelligence we have assumed that we know best. And, as the centuries have passed, we have increased our knowledge to the extent that we have largely ignored nature and become hell-bent on pursuing our own path to ruin. There are many parts of the world that humans have completely destroyed. We have produced deserts from fertile soil; we have created deep scars across what was once level land; we have misused the earth until it has become barren.

When all this has happened, we then start wondering why and what we can do about it. If we begin to look around us, there are many times that we can realise that it is not a case of Father knowing best but one of Mother Nature being able to show us the way - if we are prepared to follow.

All living things have their place in the scheme of things. But all living things must die. Fortunately, their usefulness carries on. Nothing need be wasted - unless a human is involved. Nature makes a use for everything while we have a habit of throwing perfectly useful things away. If you take a stroll through the bush or a forest, you will see what I mean. As leaves die, they fall to the earth where they lie in layers. We tend to only see the topmost leaves which look just the same as they did when on the tree except for being brown instead of green. But, stop and lift one of those leaves and you will soon see that the ones underneath are changing. They are darker, they are damper, they are full of holes, they are rotting away. And the further down you go, the less like a leaf they become until they are almost indistinguishable from the soil
