Traveling all over the globe from the Bahamas to Iceland, New Zealand to Alaska, the Grand Canyon to Chile, and everywhere in between, Edmaier captured from above rarely seen landscapes such as bubbling mud pools, volcanic eruptions, coral reefs, eroded canyons, and arctic glaciers.

150 gorgeous full-page photographs cover the entire color spectrum, each accompanied by an explanation of how, where, and why these spectacular colors occur on the Earth's surface. The images are presented on a black background for maximum effect, bringing nature's color wheel to life. This is the perfect book for anyone who finds inspiration in our planet's natural beauty.
