A tribute to Gary Tonhouse

By Kerri on March 12, 2014 in Blog

On Feb. 14, we lost one of Iowa’s best nature photographers. Gary Tonhouse was a contributor to INHF’s calendar and magazine for many years, producing beautiful work inspired by a state he loved. His photos brought us joy and reminded us of the value of our work and love for Iowa’s natural places. Gary was generous with his photography over the years, allowing all of us to see our beautiful state through his eyes and teaching others to appreciate their environment by bridging the gap with photography. He captured moments and places that will always stay with us. Thank you, Gary, for your dedication and fondness toward Iowa’s fields, creatures, landscapes and people.

For today’s Wordless Wednesday, we’re paying tribute to some of Gary’s beautiful work.
