About the Book
The award winning photographer and writer Christoph Stopka has spent many years photographing clouds and has now assembled a truly stunning selection of images for his book "Clouds". Bizarre shapes, iridescent colors, often mind bending in scale - this book offers a never before seen collection of breathtaking images documenting Nature's fantasy world in the sky. Many of Stopka's extraordinary photographs captured once-in-a-lifetime moments such as a huge, colorful meteor streaking through the starry night sky, right above a big cloud that is illuminated from the inside by a raging thunderstorm. In total more than 100 spectacular images on 186 pages. In addition, Christoph Stopka has paired this visual experience with quotes and musings about clouds by some of history's most famous minds (Paolo Coelho, Henry David Thoreau, Lao Tzu, Mahatma Gandhi, Frank Lloyd Wright, Maya Angelou and many more). Furthermore, this book offers also many fascinating facts about clouds. For example: Did you know that a simple fluffy, white cloud weighs more than a million pounds?
This book is a work of art and will forever change the way its reader will look at clouds.
