This is the third book in the "Sojourns In Nature" series featuring the work of Gustav W. Verderber and Rob Servranckx. "Closer to Home and Farther Afield" is a lavish portfolio of landscape, wildlife, and macro images, from the north woods, the Boreal Atlantic coast, as well as destinations farther afield.
In over 150 images, you'll experience the grandeur of New England's fall foliage, be thrilled by close encounters with moose and owls and bears and bobcats and whales, and find yourself transfixed before magnificent waterfalls, dazzling sunrises, and breathtaking landscapes from frozen wilderness to steamy glacial bogs inhabited by meat-eating plants! The lion's share of images in this book come from Gustav and Rob's home ground: Northeastern U.S., Southern Quebec, and the Maritime provinces.
If you live in the Northeast (or wish you did!), if you appreciate superb nature photography and find fulfilment in the natural world, or if you simply want to own a collection of some of the finest images of nature taken by two of the Northeast's foremost nature photographers, this book belongs in your library.
