Product Description


"If you like to be able to just sit and look at beautiful images and not have to read that much, this book is for you, or whoever is lucky enough to get it as a gift from you." — Nature Photographers Online Magazine

No matter where you live, the sun rises and sets. Along its path the light changes — sometimes imperceptibly, always gradually, and sometimes stunningly on its path from dawn to dark and back again… Dawn to Dark Photographs: The Magic of Light tells this lush story through the work of National Geographic's best visual storytellers.” –McPherson Sentinel

"From peaceful lakes and broad landscapes, to Muslim pilgrims gathering to pray, U.S. Army soldiers on patrol and a crowded New York City sidewalk on a rainy day and myriad locations and scenes in between, the photographers of National Geographic share different shades of light in stunning images from around the world." -Deseret News

Worth much more than it cost. Jan. 3 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Four hundred large, thick pages with wonderful images depicting light. I wasn't sure that I would like it, but I DO. Very Much. There is a great deal of magic in these pages. Often there are a few words from the photographer or the writer about why and how and always there is thought and information about the subject matter. The book inspires - I feel privileged to own this book.
