I think you hit another home run with the emphasis on a picture within a picture.  Too often we include too much in our frame, when the unusual or interesting bits are worthy of closer scrutiny and enjoyment.  I’m sure that message came through to the audience, with your numerous illustrations of the principle on screen. Thanks again for judging for NBCC – you undertook a long drive and a tough subject, and came through in spectacular fashion!

Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge

In Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge: An Ecological Treasure, Irene Hinke-Sacilotto was able to do a nearly impossible task-that of capturing on film the pure natural beauty of Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge. Irene’s photographs portray the refuge in all its moods, from the tranquility of a pristine coastline to the magnificence of our nation’s wild creatures.

“Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge, An Ecological Treasure”

With large high quality images and limited but easy to understand text, I designed the book to be suitable for all ages. In it I describe the dynamics of barrier islands, how they naturally shift and change shape with storms, winds, waves and rising sea level. I introduce readers to the various habitats on the island and to the animals that live there. In addition, I cover the role that wildlife refuges play in protecting species, including those that are endangered or threatened.
