Format: Hardcover
This is a moving and beautiful collection of wildlife photographs. They capture the individuality and nobility of these animals. I especially like the ones of the lions. They truly are royalty in their kingdom.
One thought occured to me. Because some of these prints are sepia toned and look as if they were taken a century or more ago, I felt as if I was looking at creatures that were long dead. Jane Goodall states how tragic it would be if future generations were to look at these beautiful portraits and not be able to see them in the wild. Anyone looking at these photographs cannot fail to be moved by them.

This book shows how wildlife photographs should be. The views in this book are simply stunning and the use of black and white has created an album of such atmosphere you can feel yourself being drawn into its pages. I spent hours just staring at each page and taking in the feel of each scene.
Simply brilliant.

I bought On This Earth after receiving A Shadow Falls as a bithday present. Both these books are stunning.

On This Earth is Nick Brandt first book and I can see how his skill with a Camera has improved between the two books. This is not to say his phosts are in way bad in this book. They are simply Stunning! A quick flick thru' this book and you realise how good Nick is. But examine each picture and you realise that Nick has a major talent, whichj makes my efforts at photography look feeble.

I also love the Sepia effect to these pieces of art and the fact that the wildlife in the shots is not necessarily the main focus.

There is a feeling of life to these pictures and you can almost feel that you were there looking over Nick shoulder when he pressed the shutter release.

This book is fab and would recommend it to anybody interested in Photography or African Wildlife!

What a wonderfull collection of photographs,Nicks use of the black and white medium is superb,like it has been said before, that, it realy does look like the animals are posing for him,he has a style all of his own,and with the way they have been printed [more than likely in the wet darkroom] brings the absolute best out of them, you can tell he has an absolute love and understanding of these African animals to get photographs like these, a fantastic book.

Format: Hardcover
This book is just beautiful the way the animals are captured in their natural environment these images are fine art not just beautiful photography.
Also to consider is the way he has composed the shots, he has somehow caught a little but of the animals essence i find myself looking at some of the photographs and getting lost in them.
Also it was amazon who was my savior in being able to purchase the book at all as it was impossible to try buy this book through normal retail streams everywhere told me it was of of print.
