Award-winning nature photographer Jim Brandenberg gave himself a challenge--for 90 days between the autumnal equinox and the winter solstice, he would take only one photograph each day. This exquisite book is the result of that bold and immensely personal project as he witnesses the cycle of nature near his home in the northwoods of Minnesota. 90 color photos.

One snap a day! What an awesome feat when dealing with ever-changing nature! Watch the seasons change simply by turning each beautiful page! Talent & awesome beauty combined!
Before it was a book it was a feature article in the National Geographic Magazine. My breath was taken away by the beauty of the pictures. Learning that Brandenburg, in order to get back to the roots of his craft had challenged himself to take just one photo--just one shot--each day made the article more a miracle than a photo essay. When I found it in this beautiful book form I had to have it. I am now buying it for gifts.
i bought this as a gift for my father, an amateur nature photographer himself, but couldn't resist taking a peek before giving it to him. i found myself trying to brush a bit of leaf off of a ruffed grouse's face. brandenburg inspires me to pick up a camera and see what i encounter.
