Spectacle: Rare And Astonishing Photographs by National Geographic

(Thank you to the publisher and TLC Book Tours for providing me with a copy of this book!)
about book:

An exquisite photo collection showcasing awe-inducing moments from around the world, including the aurora borealis, cities made of neon lights, a great wildebeest migration, a contortionist on display–and more.

In life, there are certain sights that are as beautiful as they are unforgettable–from a majestic supercell to the secrets of a deep blue ice cave to the world’s largest library. These fascinating spectacles shock us in their diversity, their complexity, and their epic scale, bringing us the miraculous beauty of our planet. Featuring more than 200 color images, including acclaimed photography from the National Geographic Image Collection, this volume presents a dazzling array of natural and manmade wonders, unusual phenomena, and amusing curiosities. Each page will enlighten and inspire, presenting our world at its best.

my thoughts:

Wow. National Geographic has done it again.  Another awesome book chock full of beautiful photographs capturing nature, cities, and people.  It is simply breathtaking. I mean it, this book will just "wow" you.  I found myself sipping a cuppa and flipping through the pages of this coffee table sized book and just thinking, "Wow!"  I was truly amazed at the photographers' abilities to capture action shots and close-ups that seemed to breathe life with such a vibrancy - I was mesmerized.

Spectacle has a variety of images from all over the world, which makes it thrilling to look at.  You feel as if you are traveling to different places as you turn the pages.  This book inspires and teaches- it is such an excellent tome to get lost in.  I absolutely enjoyed spending time with it. Poring over stunning photographs that are colorful, rich, and vivid was such a treat.  This is one book that I will happily look through again and again.  And, it is a book that I know will make for a terrific holiday gift.  I can't wait to share it with family and friends.

I would happily recommend Spectacle to fans of National Geographic, fans of photography, and fans of coffee table books - you will LOVE this book to bits!
