Light on the Earth culls the best nature photographs from two decades of the prestigious international Wildlife Photographer of the Year Competition. Covering all natural subjects, this lavish, large-format book emphasizes beauty--in colour and form--as well as unforgettable scenes of both animals and landscape. Perfect for camera-buffs and animal-lovers alike, each image is accompanied by a memorable caption. Every chapter is introduced by a famous photographer or personality, from the innovative French aerial photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand to the renowned National Geographic lensman, Frans Lanting.
Also featured is the work of prominent Canadian photographers Paul Nicklen of Whitehorse, whose work appears in National Geographic, and the widely published Theo Allofs, also of Whitehorse. An index is provided.
