Join physician and landscape photographer Mohan Bhasker on a round-the-world journey to some of Earth's most exquisite sites. Vicariously traverse a Laos jungle, kayak among Antarctica's icebergs, trek through Nepal's Himalayan mountain range and Brazil's scorching sand dunes, and come upon impossibly blue lagoons tucked into the rugged Argentine terrain. Interspersed with the images are adventure travel stories about close calls with nature, opportunities missed, serendipitous timing, and the payoff of persistence. The camera lens lingers on everything from pristine panoramas to quiet coves and closeups of penguin chicks. In a fifteen-year collection of more than 220 photographs, the author pays tribute to the beauty, history, and significance of some of the most remote places on Earth.
