About the Author:

Bernhard Edmaier (b.1957) trained as a civil engineer and geologist and has photographed the earth?s surface for over 15 years. The result of meticulous planning and research, his extraordinary travels take him from the deserts of Africa to the ice plains of Iceland and the coral cliffs of the Great Barrier Reef. His abstractly beautiful compositions offer an awe-inspiring view of our planet. Dr. Angelika Jung-Hüttl (b.1957) is a geologist and writer who contributes to a number of different newspapers and popular scientific magazines. She has worked and traveled with Edmaier for 10 years and has written several books on volcanoes, ice and glaciers.
