Wildlife Photographer of the Year Portfolio 22 is a collection of winning images from the Veolia Wildlife Photographer of the year competition 2012.
The book is a brilliant collection of stunning images from all over the world. More than just a collection of images, though, each picture is accompanied by a small paragraph about the nature of the animal photographed, and sometimes the photographer's aim with the photo as well as some technical information about what camera was used and the setting used to take the shot, making this book useful as well as beautiful to look through.
Organised into the categories of the awards, it is easy to find an area of particular interest and see the winning image, and the commended images, as well as the runner up ones, making for an interesting and well organised viewing.
It is very inspirational to see so many great wildlife shots in one place, so if wildlife photography is your thing, then this book is well worth a look. The portfolio section is particularly good, and shows the vulnerability of our natural world in these challenging times. A very enjoyable book to read.
