When George W. Stone was appointed editor-in-chief of National Geographic Travel in January, it was considered a coronation for almost two decades of writing and editing for the medium. Safe to say he knows a thing or two about globetrotting. He had already proven that in his two previous books – From Mist and Stone: The Folklore of the Celts and Vikings and Raging Forces: Life on a Violent Planet – and just recently published his third and most interesting one for travel photographers.
WILD, BEAUTIFUL PLACES: Picture-Perfect Journeys Around the Globe is a must-have for who’s looking for new shooting destinations. From national parks and the Seven Wonders of the World to 50 of the most secluded, rarely photographed sites, National Geographic lets you experience some of the magnificent (and slowly disappearing) vistas of our world. Each image is accompanied by first-hand accounts from the photographers as well as useful travel information to help readers’ wanderlust become a reality. Perfect timing, with the holidays – and gifts – around the corner.
Inspired? Hungry for more? Well, you’ll have to buy the book for that. Where, you ask? Pretty much anywhere books are sold. That includes Amazon.
