These are stunning photographs, and lots of them. This book is divided into sections (Mystery, Harmony, Wit, Discovery, Energy, and Intimacy) with accompanying text for each one, along with scattered quotes from photographers. Some of the photos have background from the photographer about how they took it. Some of my favorites include the polar bear, the seagulls on the giant baseball glove, and the brittle star and starfish.
