I was not inclined to purchase the book at all. It seemed very superficial and 'prettily' sterile. It was one of those moments when one thinks that various locations (Yosemite, Zabriskie Point, Iceland, Death Valley, Slot Canyons, the 'wave', etc.) are the 'de jour' sites for the full time photographer of landscapes, and 'fine art' who feel that just showing up and making an acceptable image is good enough. Well....I didn't think so then, nor do I now.
