EarthArt: Colours of the Earth is a spectacular large-format collection of breathtaking aerial photographs by world-renowned photographer Bernhard Edmaier. Travelling all over the globe, from the Bahamas to Iceland, New Zealand to Alaska, and the Grand Canyon to Chile, Edmaier captures rarely-seen landscapes from above, such as bubbling mud pools, volcanic eruptions, coral reefs, eroded canyons and arctic glaciers. 150 full-page photographs cover the entire spectrum, and each image is accompanied by an explanation of how, where and why these spectacular colours occur on the earth's surface. EarthArt is the perfect gift book for anyone who loves travel, nature and the environment, as well as photographic art and design, and is inspired by the natural beauty of our planet.
