Southern Light PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Southern Light free pdf A photo book of exceptional quality, depicting the awe-inspiring scenery and wildlife of the frozen continent in both color and black and white. Between 1990 and 2009, veteran wilderness photographer David Neilson made six journeys to Antarctica and the subantarctic, in a quest to capture the exquisite light of these southernmost lands. This oversized volume presents the spectacular results of his efforts- its 130 color and 100 duotone plates portray the dramatic topography of the Antarctic Peninsula- the icebound expanses of East Antarctica- the Ross Sea region, which witnessed the heroic age of Antarctic exploration- and the subantarctic islands of South Georgia and Macquarie, with their profusion of wildlife. Many of the landscape photographs were taken with a large-format view camera for maximum detail and tonal subtlety, and several are reproduced as panoramic gatefolds, showing the true vastness of this great southern realm. The images of wildlife, many of them remarkable close-ups, include emperor, king, Adelie, gentoo, chinstrap, royal, and macaroni penguins- wandering, royal, and grey-headed albatross- and crabeater and fur seals. Accompanying the photographs are a narrative of Neilson's Antarctic journeys, essays on conservation and climate change, and five full-page maps. Southern Light is an excellent gift for anyone who has visited Antarctica personally, as well as for those who prefer to admire its frozen beauty from a more temperate clime.
