Summary: (from goodreads) Very few photography books become a national sensation, but Earth from Above capured the imagination of a huge audience. This revised and expanded edition contains a new introduction by Lester Brown, founder and president ofthe Earth Policy Institute, new text and captions by environmental experts, and, best of all, an additional 17 photographs.

Earth from Above is the best photography book I've pick up in a long time. The images that were captured are just pure talent. You see beautiful, unique shots of landscapes or people. Some of the images you ask yourself, how is that possible what I see in the picture. SO much color and detail in each picture, you are left turning the pages faster and faster to devour all the images. Then you go through the book again. Look at the cover, see what I mean. How is it possible to have a shape of a heart made of trees. This is the perfect book to own to have on that coffee table at your home. Get ready to be transported to so many different places and cultures in 500 pages of photography.

  1. I love that picture on the cover! Does it explain in the book if the heart shape is natural or not? Thanks for sharing... I will have to check it out next time I'm in a book store. ~ Jen @ A Book and a Latte
