About the Author
Trevien Stanger is a poet, tree-planter, educator, and writer living and working in the Champlain Basin of Vermont and New York State. Since his early twenties, Trevien has worked seasonally for the Intervale Conservation Nursery, where he leads crews in completing ecological restoration projects along Vermont's rivers and wetlands. Throughout this decade of tree-planting, he has witnessed first hand the realities of Lake Champlain's clean water issues, while also helping play a small, direct role in generating new technical and cultural responses to the situation.Mike Sipe has been a serious amateur photographer for over thirty years, gracing personal walls with images that have staying power. His objective is using natural light in capturing gifts of images--by being in the right place at the right time with the right equipment--which evoke a magical light and an interesting confluence of elements. Since his retirement from private practice as a Life-Wealth Planner in 2013, and completing the publication of his gift edition of Advocate Planning: To Do What You Love To Do, he is driven with a passion for the Lake Champlain region to pursue photography full time. The region is his unparalleled muse; the beauty of the lake, skies, mountains, valley and the people enjoying its splendor. Mike doesn't have to travel the world to find world-class beauty; it is here, in his back yard. He loves to capture area vistas with just the right light accenting a center of interest, the affects of natural elements and motion, and when he finds a wide tonal range, the elegant impression of black and white.
