This large-format coffee-table book (15 10 inches) includes over 300 luscious images, disclosing such sights as

- mountain peaks glowing red under the setting sun
- ocean shores glistening blue
- black volcanic rock erupting into vivid red founts of fire
- softer pastel tones blanketing a blooming heath or lavender field
- a medley of greens--deep-green hues of tropical rainforests, poison-green reptiles, and light-green fresh undergrowth in valleys

Travelers, photographers, anthropologists, and daydreamers alike will marvel at the almost infinite expanse of orange tones in Wadi Rum or Rub al-Khali and the vibrant purple lupines blossoming in Arthur's Pass National Park. Earth is an inexhaustible treasure of rich colors and diverse forms.

To facilitate appreciation of the complexity of the panoramic images, the five most dominant hues of each have been extracted and placed in a color bar directly above the image. This encourages us to hone in on the brilliant range of color present in our natural environment.

Features landscape, wildlife, and plant life photos from every continent, with chapters subdivided into

- Europe
- Africa
- Asia
- Australia & Oceania
- North & Central America
- South America
- Antarctica
