This book has lots of great photos, and it's not limited to landscapes. The text isn't the best part of the book: it's half musings on landscape photography and half technical, and the technical stuff isn't particularly deep or insightful. But the hundreds of photos are the heart of this book. Each one is captioned with technical details and in most cases the short story about how the author envisioned and executed the shot. These are well worth perusing.

This book was really helpful to me since I'm currently involved in a rather large landscape imaging project. I particularly liked the step-by-step instructions since I'm a Photoshop user and lately everything seems to be geared toward Lightroom. Read it. You won't be sorry.
