Following the success of "Scotland," "The Lake District," and "France," Scotland's most renowned landscaper photographer, Colin Baxter, now gives us a personal portrayal of the wonder that is Iceland.
Iceland sits astride the Mid-Atlantic ridge and is home to about 200 volcanoes, whose eruptions are frequent. Deep fjords fringe the coast and only the coastal lowlands are habitable.
This book is a personal selection of photographs from Colin Baxter's travels in this remarkable volcanic landscape, including photography of the 1998 eruption of Mount Hekla, the largest glacier in Iceland, Vatanajokull, and an array of geyser and waterfalls that make up this unique landscape. From the famous blue lagoon to the cliff scenery of the most westerly point in Europe, Látrabjarg, we encounter a land of ice and snow, sunshine and rainbows. Following the success of "Scotland," "The Lake District," and "France", Scotland's most renowned landscaper photographer, Colin Baxter, now gives us a personal portrayal of the wonder that is Iceland. Also Recommended: "England, the Nature of the Land," "France."

Colin Baxter is Scotland's best-known landscape photographer. His postcard images have been bought and received by millions of people throughout the world in the last twenty years.From Library Journal:
The Icelandic Tourist Board has reported a steady increase in visitors from North America, and the handsome photographs in this book help explain why. Baxter, whose landscape photographs have been seen in countless travel books (e.g., Portrait of Scotland; Glasgow Pocket Guide), calendars, and postcards, here provides dramatic color shots revealing lunarlike landscapes, glacial lagoons, rugged coastlines, and crystal-clear air you can almost inhale from the pages. Unfortunately, both the short introduction by Cathy Harlow and the "Information About Iceland" section read like tourist board business promotions, heavy on geology and the limitations of the Icelandic economy. Brief captions identify (in Icelandic) what you are looking at but do not elaborate. Is the church in the photograph of historic interest? What can a visitor enjoy at the Bustarfell Folk Museum? The Insight Guide Iceland, now in its third edition, includes excellent photographs as well as solid travel advice and would be a more useful purchase for libraries serving potential travelers.
