In this exquisitely photographed record of the Canadian landscape, renowned photographer J.A. Kraulis captures the majesty and grandeur of a vast and staggeringly diverse country. Expansive prairies and forests, impressive coastlines, majestic inland lakes and rivers are captured in these images of the land.
This magnificent collection of over 200 photographs and captions presents Canada at its most visceral: a flash of lightning exploding across a summer sky; a sudden winter storm descending on an otherwise tranquil bay; the surface of a lake caught in a moment of stillness, mirroring the world around it -- scenes of unbridled beauty as captured by one of the country's most prolific photographers.
Canada: Images of the Land is a celebration of a country that will inspire urban dwellers and nature enthusiasts alike.

Kraulis, and experience the thrilling majesty of Canada's mountains, plains, waters, and wonders. If nature photography is your thing, you can't do better than this.|

|Review Quote*||There are no fewer than 200 awe-inspiring images of our sweeping, wondrous country in this beautiful hardcover by Canadian landscape photographer J.A. Kraulis. The collection of glossy, colourful images is of places seemingly untouched by modern conveniences. They include the breathtaking slopes of Mumm Peak in the southern Rockies, stunning illuminated boulders on Cape Enrage along the coast of the Bay of Fundy in New Brunswick, and a magnificent meltwater pond at the base of Mount Edith Cavell in Jasper National Park. They're all fantastic. But none are as wondrous as the peaceful image of Punk Island in Lake Winnipeg. Kraulis shot it from the West Quarry trail on Hecla Island and in doing so, truly captured the serenity of our provinces Interlake.|
