The photographs are arranged in eight exhibits according to the many qualities of light found in mountain environments. Rowell also shares the stories that went into their creation—what he was after and how he achieved it, from preparation and "previsualizing" to the physical challenges of being in the right place at exactly the right time.

In the rugged northern Rocky Mountains lies a spectacularly beautiful valley, known to the Native peoples as the Sacred Headwaters. There, on the edge of the Spatsizi Wilderness, the Serengeti of North America, three of the continent's most important salmon rivers—the Stikine, the Skeena, and the Nass—are born. Now, against the wishes of the Native inhabitants, the government of British Columbia has opened the Sacred Headwaters to industrial development. Imperial Metals proposes an open-pit copper and gold mine, called the Red Chris mine, processing 30,000 tons of ore a day, and Royal Dutch Shell wants to extract coal bed methane gas from an anthracite deposit across an enormous tenure of close to a million acres.
The splendor of the region is portrayed in this collection of photographs...

As nature photography has shifted decisively towards digital in recent years, much has been written offering guidance and tips on technical matters, but there has been little published on the creative aspects. European Wildlife Photographer of the Year Chris Gomersall addresses this gap in a fresh and accessible guide, which takes account of developments in photography without dwelling on technical details.

By Douglas Beasley
Over a period of ten years, photographer Douglas Beasley set out across the plains of South and North Dakota, and onward to the Hawaiian Islands, Peru, and Ireland, to catch a glimpse of the sacred in the beauty of these landscapes. He recorded his journey in these mesmerizing photographs, taken at sites like Wounded Knee and Corn Creek, in ancient hallowed places like Stonehenge, and along the Oregon coast. Reproduced in stunning duotone, the photographs reveal his personal vision, one concerned with how the sacred is recognized and expressed in everyday life. Beasley’s photographic journey offers readers a departure point for their own spiritual exploration, and a chance to witness how earth and spirit, though they exist independently, can seem to merge.
