With artful images rich in visual poetry, Light at the Edge brings the reader into the beautiful and ephemeral landscapes of Point Reyes, California. Located at the edge of the continent and sculpted by massive tectonic plates, this landscape is constantly changing. Pacific Ocean fog pours in and glows in dawn and at sunset. Waves crash against the shore and create stunning vistas defined in beautiful light. It is a place that stimulates all one’s senses, and each moment is a gift. Breaking new ground in landscape photography, the images throughout Light at the Edge have the power to convey the land’s beauty and the magic of experiencing it.
