Wild Planet Photo Magazine – Issue 23 • September 2015

What makes The September Issue truly special is the emphasis we’ve placed on featuring new work by our readers and followers. The deadline for entries was tight but the response was fantastic with hundreds of images uploaded to our website. The wonderful variety and impressive quality of work submitted made choosing the final selection a very difficult but hugely enjoyable task. The result is now in front of you, with seven special themed photo galleries that I am honoured to share. If you missed out, don’t worry. The September Issue is here to stay! We will definitely do it again next year. In the meantime, enjoy the issue and please spread the word.

About Merle Ann Loman: Merle lives south of Missoula, Montana on the west side of the Bitterroot valley. Many of her photos are taken in western Montana, but also around the world. She loves being outdoors. She hikes, bikes, fishes, hunts, skis and ALWAYS take photos. As much time as she spends outdoors, one needs to eat. You might see photos of food on these treks as she explore the sights, flora and fauna.

Merle uses a Canon 7D (with a few lenses) and shoot in RAW. The photos are processed into JPG using Adobe Lightroom with as few adjustments as possible.
