Out of a difficult developing story comes a reminder of the many talented people who populate our world.

That’s what I thought as I tracked the path of a fire near Sedona, Arizona. And while numerous news sites do the story justice, Arizona Highways does it with panache and beauty.

So last week, when their always-great blog noted that they had some aerial photos of the fire, I clicked in to see.

That’s when I spotted the work of the talented photographer (and lawyer) Ted Grussing. A dedicated photog and an accomplished glider pilot, he took to the skies to document for readers the fire’s devastation.

You can see more work by Ted here on the Arizona Highways blog.

And you should take a look at Ted’s own terrific website too.

Here at the State Bar, we’ve been fortunate to feature Ted’s work a few times in the past. In a few recent years, his nature photography has graced the cover of the State Bar Membership Directory. Here are his covers.
