About Dick Jacobs


A lawyer by training – a photo explorer by passion.

Dick Jacobs

This site, using my photography and my writings to take our thoughts Beyond the Far Horizon, has evolved from from my treks and journeys, camera in hand, and my study of the challenges each of us must carefully consider as we define our mission as humans and in particular our relationship to nature and our environment.

My goal? For each of us to become a “Planeteer” – a difference maker using our ecophilia – our love of nature – with a passion for the benefit of us all.

I’m a Nikon shooter and Apple computer user. I’ve been fortunate to have trekked many of the primitive sites on our globe‘s seven continents, from the Africa to the Antarctica, from the Rockies to the Himalayas.

In 2015 Wonderlust, a 9×12 coffee table book with over 100 images and 26 stories based on my Wondering While Wandering became a reality.

Many of the stories have their beginnings on these blog pages. In 2018, I bought the publisher’s remaining copies and obtained my rights back from the publisher. The entire book project was gifted to local charities, and Wonderlust is now only available at the Morean Arts Center, Tampa Bay Watch, and the Pinellas Education Foundation, all located in Tampa Bay. In May 2021, Democracy of Dollars, critique of our faltering democracy, was published. This project has also been gifted to charity, Our Children’s Trust.
