“Photographs as timeless, as stunning, and as powerful as nature itself.”—Tom Brokaw

In this renowned guide to capturing the outdoor world on film, Galen Rowell, the master of nature and adventure photography, reveals the art, craft, and philosophy behind his world-famous images. Now available in paperback for the first time, this groundbreaking work remains both an inspired manual to taking better pictures and an inspiring journey of discovery into the creative process. In more than 140 color photographs and 66 essays, Rowell shows how he transformed the world around him into vivid, memorable works of art. Both the artist and his unique talent come alive in these pages, a tribute to the ways in which his photographs, philosophy, and vision immeasurably enrich those who view his work.

The book is broken into two parts. Small essays on the hows and whys a picture was taken and the back story of it all. And the other is the technical and institution side of things. Bothe are very well done. I was just turned off by all the "Global Warming" mumbo jumbo. I wish he would have left the political stuff out of the book.
