Product Description


"Top-notch photographers circle the globe in search of things beautiful and wondrous. The result is an uplifting, unifying 'vision' of our world."
--USA Today

"The catholic range of the photographs that still drive [National Geographic magazine’s] popularity is reflected in the new collection Visions of Earth."
--Wall Street Journal

"Incredible images include macro shots of strange American species, haunting landscapes featuring fisherman and swimming baitfish, and British ladies donning bold one-pieces."
--Huffington Post

“…extraordinary in the way [the images] entice and intrigue, inviting viewers to revel not only in the beauty of scenes, people, and objects, but also in playful, imaginative, and surprising points of view.” –Book News, Inc.
“It's a compendium of jaw-dropping images — landscapes, animals, interesting people, with the accent on the unusual — captured by the magazine's sterling staff of shooters.”

About the Author

HASH(0x9b86015c) out of 5 stars Not visions of earth, visions of Culture Sept. 13 2013
By Tawni Silva - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is 80% images of people and culture, not really "earth." The photo cover is VERY misleading. The pictures are cool, but this is something that you can look at in under 15 minutes at a book store. Probably not something you'd open up and look at everyday. Could be a cool coffee table book for guests, but otherwise only good for one quick flip through.

HASH(0xa17e975c) out of 5 stars Beautiful photography book! Nov. 22 2011
By Photography enthusiast - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I bought this book as a gift for my father, who loves beautiful coffee-table books. Before wrapping it, I decided to thumb through the book to make sure he would like it. However, as I delved deeper and deeper, I became enthralled with all the beautiful photos - they're absolutely stunning!

The photos range all over the world, from action photos to beautiful closeup shots of tiny little insects. Not all of the photographs are perfect, but there are enough amazing photos that make you wonder at how the photographer captured the image.

Absolutely beautiful and highly recommended!

HASH(0x9bd7cad4) out of 5 stars Captivating images that will leave you spellbound Feb. 7 2012
By J. Chambers - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
"Visions of Earth" is another magnificent collection of photographs from National Geographic. It's a huge book, with over 500 pages of awe-inspiring photography from around the world, including both land and sea images.

The book is subtitled "Beauty, Majesty, Wonder," and that's an apt description. I was mesmerized looking at the incredible photography. The book is divided into fifteen themes, each having a brief text introduction, followed by the images for that theme. There's some marvelous imagery here, and I would hate to be a contest judge and have to choose only one winner from the lot.

There's something here for everyone, and I can't imagine anyone flipping through the pages of "Visions of Earth" without a lot of oohs and ahs.

HASH(0x9bf8bf24) out of 5 stars It's a smaller book than you would think (maybe about the height of a regular paperback) which I think is perfect because there Oct. 23 2014

I ordered this book as a gift, and I was surprised at the size of it. It's a smaller book than you would think (maybe about the height of a regular paperback) which I think is perfect because there will be no problem fitting it on a book shelf. Despite it's size it is a substantial book (really thick), and it's filled with great photos.

HASH(0x9bf959e4) out of 5 stars Nice Collection Sept. 7 2012
By MG - Published on
Format: Hardcover
The book is obviously a gorgeous collection of photographs. It is inspiring both as a photographer and as a person living on this planet to see such beauty. About 25% of the photographs I don't really care for, but that does not take much away from the book.

One reviewer calls the book "clichéd". Well, if this book is cliché then it does an amazing job of covering the Cliché.

At around $25, it is a steal. It would also make a lovely gift for anyone interested in photography or nature.
