The Earth is a dynamic mechanism for life where ecosystems are linked to each other. Forests, deserts, mountains, grasslands, oceans, polar regions and fresh water become the units of our natural world and home of all its species. But these ecosystems not only serve as the support for life, but also as a source of wonder, inspiration and education for humankind.Fruit of that wonder, Whytake becomes the inspiration resources for those who see and feel the natural world through the viewfinder of a camera.
