Imprelis Herbicide for The New York Times

Last Thursday afternoon, I got a call from The New York Times asking if I could run out and make some images of dead evergreen trees just north of Columbus. Apparently this story has been unfolding all over the country as complaints are surfacing that allege a DuPont chemical could be causing the death of many homeowner's landscaping. The homeowner in this particular story, Robert Deprato, talked to me for a little while about camera gear, and then asked if I needed to use a macro. He ended up having a 90mm macro lens, which helped to illustrate the dead pine needles a little bit better than any glass I had.

If you're interested, read the story in The NYT or the Denver Post, where it also ran.
