From the Foreword by Graham Watkins, Ph.D., former Executive Director of the Charles Darwin Foundation (Galapagos)
Pete Oxford and Reneé Bish spent a decade creating fresh and exceptional images of one of the world's most remarkable placesand the result is this collection of once-in-a-lifetime shots. The two photographers have fashioned an unashamed celebration of the everyday life in the Galapagos that truly captures its essence and spirit. Every picture will leave readers awestruck and delighted: a sea lion mother with her baby; iguanas swimming in deep blue waters; a brilliantly-colored vermilion flycatcher resting on Spanish moss; a penguin atop Pinnacle Rock, surveying a magnificent landscape below. In addition, there's a spectacular record of the volcanic eruption of Fernandina in February 1995one of the geological events fundamental to the archipelago's character.
These stunning photos, as well as the compelling accompanying text and a map of the islands, will help us better understand the beauty and uniqueness of the Galapagosand the importance of conserving its sanctity.
