American photographer Beth Moon -- born in Wisconsin, now living in California -- explores the mythic dimensions of nature. Some of her pictures focus explicitly on shamanistic connections between people and beasts; others have less esoteric subjects but have the same mystical feel. All of these are platinum prints, not digital photos. Above, Kapok, from her series Portraits of Time.
Two pictures from her series Odin's Cove, featuring a pair of ravens she got to know. I love these.
