Internationally acclaimed nature and wildlife photographer Art Wolfe has long had a love affair with California. Along its coastline he finds iconic vistas and light playing upon water in ways that crystallize the very idea of West Coast. In this luscious book, he explores all of the natural regions of the state including the alpine lakes of the high Sierra, the ancient forests, and the uniquely abundant and colorful desert. Wolfe showcases a California that is familiar — the craggy peaks of Yosemite, the fog-caressed rolling grass hills of Marin, the arid high-plains of Owens Valley — and yet remarkably new as seen through his expert lens.
