Riassunto: A Journey in Time comprises more than two decades of nature photography by Peter Stearns, offering a comprehensive vision of Mendocino County through the lens of his camera. Arranged by month into a yearlong guided tour, this sensitive exploration features 313 superb wildflower photographs. Lovingly researched text provides detailed information about where and when to find each flower in bloom, and for botany students, the Latin genus and species complement the more commonly used names. Twenty-four dazzling land- and seascapes are also included. Nature lovers and wildflower enthusiasts will embrace this timeless journey and its exquisite images.

A self-taught photographer, Mr. Stearns read Andreas Feininger’s books and studied the work of David Muench. Feininger and Muench, he says, are all you need to know about composition and color photography the rest is up to you. I came from a family that loved art and, in their later years, became painters, photographers, and silversmiths; I guess I m following in their footsteps.

Peter’s photographs and archival color prints, displayed in the Mendocino, Flower Portrait, and Western States galleries, have proven to be bestsellers.

My wife Robbie and I have lived in Ukiah for nearly fifty years, Peter says. It s time to show other people the beauty of the area. My hope is that the message in A Journey In Time will reach the many people who have yet to open their eyes to the splendor that surrounds us every day. If we re good stewards, and careful with the environment, we might be able to save it.

About the Author: Born in New York City in 1928, Peter Stearns grew up in Bronxville. After graduating from Nichols College, in Dudley, Massachusetts, he served in the United States Marine Corps during the Korean War (1950-1952). After being honorably discharged, he traveled to eastern Oregon to learn the lumber business.

In 1954, Peter moved to Ukiah, California, where he and his wife, Robbie, have lived ever since. There, he owned and managed a wholesale lumber company, built and ran a small tennis club, and pursued his passion for photographing Mendocino County wildflowers and landscapes.
