A short time ago I received an e-mail informing me that one of my images, "Fire in the Mist," had been chosen for inclusion in the book, "Light on the Earth," a compilation of twenty years of the best winning and commended images in the BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition. I was thrilled of course, but a bit disappointed that only one of my five commended images had been chosen. As I read on, I was quite a bit more thrilled when I learned that "Fire in the Mist" would not only appear in the book but would be used as cover art, gracing the partial wrap-around dust jacket. The book, which features 170 images, is--at 224 pages and just under five pounds--a large one by any standards. The images are of course for the most part breath-taking (though I would disagree with a few of the choices...) In addition to the images, there are essays by some of the world's premier photographic artists including one of my idols, Jim Brandenburg.
We have a limited number of signed copies available. The book will be signed on page 35 where "Fire in the Mist" appears. If you would like me to personalize the book, please let us know when you order and I shall do so on the title plate. If you request a personalized copy and I am on the road, your order will be shipped when I return home.
