OVERVIEW Cathy and Gordon Illg specialize in wildlife, nature and outdoor recreation. For more than two decades they have been visiting outstanding locations for both scenic and wildlife photography, even going so far as to be marooned on a deserted, tropical island. They have photographed not only the most famous and popular natural attractions, but also many lesser known wild places. By waiting for special light and putting themselves in the right place at the right time, they make even ordinary subjects look extraordinary.
