Mountain LightMountain Light
In Search of the Dynamic Landscape
By Galen Rowell
Paperback, 240 pages
ISBN: 978-0-87156-367-5
80 color photographs

Mountain Light is the best-selling classic that captures the unique artistic vision of Galen Rowell, one of the world's most celebrated nature photographers. This remarkable collection offers 80 of Rowell's finest photographic images, as well as the stories behind them - what he was after and how he achieved it.

Rowell arranges the photographs, with details of their creation, in eight exhibits according to visual themes, reflecting his fascination with the infinitely varying qualities of light found in mountain landscapes. He recounts his development as a photographer, his philosophy and techniques for creating "dynamic landscapes," and his adventures in remote, dangerous, and beautiful places, from California's Yosemite Valley to almost inaccessible peaks in China.

Rowell also explains how film and the human eye see differently, how he selects and composes the content of his work, how to work with optical phenomena and natural light, and how equipment and adventure interact in the field.

"A splendid blend of autobiography, personal philosophy, and superb color photographs of high, wild places."
- The New York Times

Galen Rowell (1940 - 2002), an accomplished mountaineer and the archetypal adventure photographer, was the author of Bay Area Wild, My Tibet (with H.H. The Dalai Lama), Mountains of the Middle Kingdom, The Yosemite, and other acclaimed works. His iconic images have been published in leading magazines, scores of books exhibited in major galleries, and cherished by fans ranging from the Dalai Lama to news anchor Tom Brokaw.
