"One could call Mountain Light the classiest 'how-to' text on landscape color photography ever published. [It] will leave you delighted." - The New York Times

"Part personal and artistic biography, part adventure story, part outdoor photography manual, [Mountain Light] is a tour de force. The images are charmed, compelling, inbued with a love of the high and wild." - San Francisco Chronicle

"Combine a devotion to mountains and wilderness, a sensitivity to the special quality of its pristine light, and a desire to communicate the beauty of the natural world, and you'll begin to understand what motivates photographer Galen Rowell... In [Mountain Light], vision and technique are combined in one long paean to the marvel of the earth's wild places." - Popular Photography Please click here to ask a question
