If you're showing off your Kindle Fire to a friend, there's one book out there that'll dazzle them more than any other: Because It's There by Charlie & Diane Winger. They've collected some of their best photographs from years of guidebook writing, mountain climbing, and traveling the world to pack this "photographic journey" full of gorgeous images that will fill any nature enthusiast with wanderlust. I could go on and on, but I'll let the pictures speak for themselves. This collection is a must-have, and I'm putting it on my Fire. Will you?
Name: Because It's There - A Photographic Journey
Rating: 4.3 stars over 6 reviews
Description: Because It's There takes us on a marvelous photographic journey with more than 90 adventurous and spectacular images from five continents. Authors/Photographers Charlie and Diane Winger believe there is no better reason to move beyond a familiar horizon, explore what lies around the next bend, and discover a world outside our previous experience than "Because it's there."
Like George Mallory, who uttered that famous response when asked why he strove to be the first to climb Mount Everest, the Wingers are also inspired by mountains. Charlie is the mountaineer of the family, and nearly all the snow-covered, glaciated, massive peaks in this photographic journey were his passion (and obsession). Diane is the hiker and casual rock climber, but has ventured up a few of those more challenging mountains along the way.
The Wingers draw on their extensive collection of photographs taken while writing guidebooks, climbing and trekking among some of the most beautiful peaks in the world, and enjoying time in special outdoor areas which they have come to love. Along the way, they tell a few stories and share a few laughs.
Reviews: "Their photographic journey in "Because It's There" takes the reader from mountain peaks to crevasses to sand dunes to sunsets to beautiful flowers and finally to green rice fields across five continents. I would recommend that this book be purchased in conjunction with "Two Shadows" (or any of their other books) as it gives the reader a chance to not only read but also to see their journey and vicariously experience what brought the Winger's to publish some of the most breathtaking photographs this reader has ever seen."
