About Netherton Nature

Photo of the Jason, Joshua and Erich Netherton

Netherton Nature is run by John's three sons, Jason (middle), Joshua (right) and Erich (left) Netherton. We were with our Pop when he took many of his photos. When we were young, we didn't really understand why we were still looking at the same waterfall, or why we had to be up and out 2 hours before sunrise (I admit we still had a hard time with this one when we were older). When we grew up, we began to understand. As we sort through his massive slide collection, we are still in awe of the talent that our Pop possessed.

We hope you enjoy his work as much as we have.
