Carr Clifton’s Sacred Headwaters
I recently received an email from master landscape photographer Carr Clifton. It seems he’s just returned from a trip to photograph the Sacred Headwaters of British Columbia with the International League of Conservation Photographers. Here’s what he wrote: "Home to Canada’s most important salmon spawning rivers—and one of North America’s largest predator-prey ecosystems—the Sacred Headwaters is being threatened by large scale industrial development, including copper strip mines and coal-methane gas extraction. ILCP’s mission is to obtain a comprehensive portrait of the Sacred Headwaters, giving voice to the historical, cultural and ecological significance of this region." Check out a portfolio of amazing images from Carr’s trip to this rarely photographed region at his web site, www.carrclifton.com.
