The Outdoor Show

Enjoying landscape photography often requires that we have the right gear for walking and also, if we want to spend some time in the landscape, the gear for camping too.

More ‘Books from Beyond Words’

This week we're featuring two books from Beyond Words, Sam Abell's 'Seeing Gardens' and Peter Niedermeyer's 'Appearances'. Seeing Gardens - Sam Abell Sam Abell (http://samabell-thephotographiclife.com/) is part artist/part journalist. His work for the National Geographic puts him firmly in the documentary camp and yet his photographs always seem to push to the creative interpretation, that momentary vision of something other than it is. The front cover of this book, Seeing Gardens, is a great example - a simple glance through a more
