Thanks to the most adventurous photographers from around the world, we can appreciate the natural wonders on these most beautiful places. National Geographic presents us the 2016 edition of the greatest landscapes.
A field full of multicolored flowers, fireflies that create a river of light between the trees and the Golden Gate Bridge that rises among the thick fog , are some of the impressive photographs that you will see continuation.
Veteran National Geographic photographer George Steinmetz wrote the preface for this year’s book. Jeff Williams’s WSIU spoke with Steinmetz about the book and what inspires him in landscape photography. In each image the photographer shows our planet in all its majesty through moments frozen in time.
