My first book, Amity, will be published and available via Amazon in approximately seven days. However, I am giving away a pdf version of my book via NorthStarNerd.Org (this web site). Here is the book's description:
- The Lake Superior wilderness of northern Minnesota is rustically beautiful. Amity invites you to explore this region's winter wonderland through the eyes of landscape and nature photographer Rich Hoeg. The word "Amity" comes from a small stream that roars down the hill to Lake Superior near Duluth, Minnesota.
Working (and playing) at photography over the past twelve months since retiring from Honeywell has been rewarding. Albeit doing photoshoots outdoors this winter in weather that often was -30F and colder had its drawbacks. I was flattered to see organizations such as Fox News and the Weather Channel pick up and use my ice cave photographs in national news articles on the Apostle Islands Sea Caves. In addition, being one of the few finalists in the Lake Superior Magazine annual photo contest was an honor.
I hope you enjoy Amity.

Here is just one photo from Amity. This photo of Split Rock Lighthouse was taken shortly before dawn on April 18, 2014. Winter is finally starting to give up here grip on the Northland.
