The other reviewers here are correct and so is the product description. I will not attempt to outdo them with even greater superlatives.

If you trust the BBC and Sir David Attenborough when it comes to nature - then that is all you need to know here - If you don't, you should.

HASH(0x9db69af8) out of 5 stars exquisite images Dec 16 2006
By SWfromCT - Published on
The images in LIght on Earth are the best of the best from the BBC's annual wildlife photography competition. Anyone can enter the contest, and the images that come out of it are amazing. The editorial staff have a knack for picking emotionally powerful, visually stunning images that weave together like a complex tapestry- to have the best of the images is one place is priceless.

I would also recommend checking out the actual competition, which can be viewed online, to see some of the ones that got away.

Obviously, with a collection of the top photos from the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition, it's got to be good. Many photographers who have been published in the BBC series are lesser-known, and sometimes one-hit-wonders. These images show why it takes more than a camera and a sponsor to create a stunning image. Gone are the static portraits and cluttered landscapes. These images are some of the best efforts from some of the best talents - not just showing nature, but conveying it with feeling.

this book I particularly sought for as few of the most exemplary wildlife photographs are shown...only to tell us how much we have to to learn the visual wizardry and how to look at things..this book is there to tell that this earth is inhabited by such beautifully minded creatures caled "photographers" who give enough respect to the wildlife that they sacrifice anything else...big applause to world's best show case of wildlife photography...
