All the Pretty Pictures

Sarah Lawsky's post of a chart showing how the FCC allocates spectrum reminded me of one of the many reasons I like teaching environmental and natural resources law:  We're never at a loss for dramatic pictures.  I've recently been doing some writing about wilderness areas, which have some of the most beautiful pictures around.  For example, there's nothing like a view of Yosemite's El Capitan to throw in a slide show.  (Here's a link: http://www.wilderness.net/index.cfm?fuse=NWPS&sec=enlargeAndDetails&id=497 .)  Want to show the silvicultural practices that lead to the litigation in Izaak Walton League v. Butz, 522 F.2d 945 (4th Cir. 1975)?  Nothing like a picture of a clearcut.  Sure, the issues are interesting, the legal problems are complex, the challenges to be addressed daunting.  But the pictures?  Priceless.
