Light on the Earth: Two Decades of Winning Images (Wildlife Photographer of the Year)
From BBC Books
“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.”
“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 in 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.” Amazon customer reviews
