'Founded one hundred years ago, on August 25, 1916, the National Park Service is an American invention that was developed gradually over time. As our nation expanded to the West and the beauties of our natural wonders were encountered for the first time, people generally felt one of two emotions: a desire to preserve this wilderness for future generations to enjoy, or exploit it for financial gain. .. "" -Developing an Image.

Robert Bothamley's grandfather, Herbert Rankin was an avid photographer and participated in annual trips with the members of the Sierra Club and Ansel Adams, photographing California. From his grandfather Robert developed a love for our national parks and an appreciation of photography which set him on a course of collecting these magnificent images.
