Ingeborg Suzanne principle photographer of isphotography notes: I love it when my photo assignments teach me about the world we live in. I am always amazed at how complex everyone's world is. Before I did the photography I spent an afternoon learning about the headpond, intake dam, the pipes known as penstocks, turbines, the powerhouse and tailrace channel which the diverted water is returned to the creek. Then I scheduled an afternoon in the wilderness for the photography. Had a great mountain bike from the headpond to the powerhouse. Then returned for more photography for a magazine article Just Business People were doing.
