Chasing the Mountain Light
This highly regarded outdoor and landscape photographer shares his most stunning black-and-white images from around the globe, and his adventures in search of them.
Childhood adventures in Australia inspired David Neilson to pursue as a career his twin loves of the mountain realm and photography. He has made multiple expeditions to South West Tasmania, Patagonia, and Antarctica and published critically acclaimed photographic books about each of these places; he has also carried his camera into the Karakoram mountains in Pakistan, and the Alps of Australia, New Zealand, and Europe.
In this oversize volume, Neilson recounts his lifelong quest to capture the mountain light and encourage the preservation of wild places. His spectacular images of jagged peaks, massive glaciers, and hardy wildlife are reproduced as duotones of the highest quality. Seven vertical double-page images invite readers to turn the book sideways to immerse themselves in the mountain heights. Chasing the Mountain Light will delight all lovers of wild outdoor places.
