We live in a world of optical marvels - from the commonplace but beautiful rainbow, to the rare and eerie superior mirage. But how many of us really understand how a rainbow is formed, why the setting sun is red and flattened, or even why the sky at night is not absolutely black? This beautiful and informative guide provides clear explanations to all naturally occurring optical phenomena seen with the naked eye, including shadows, halos, water optics, mirages and a host of other spectacles. Separating myth from reality, it outlines the basic principles involved, and supports them with many figures and references. A wealth of rare and spectacular photographs, many in full color, illustrate the phenomena throughout. In this new edition of the highly-acclaimed guide to seeing, photographing and understanding nature's optical delights, the authors have added over 50 new images and provided new material on experiments you can try yourself.

All of science springs from the observation of nature. In this classic book, the late Professor Minnaert accompanies the reader on a tour of nature's light and color and reveals the myriad phenomena that may be observed outdoors with no more than a pair of eyes and an enquiring mind. From the intriguing shape of the dapples beneath a tree on a sunny day, via rainbows, mirages, and haloes, the colors of liquid, ice, and the sky, to the appearance of the sun, moon, planets, and stars - Minnaert describes and explains them all in a clear language accessible to laymen. This new English edition is supplemented by 80 plates, over half of them in color, taken by the acclaimed photographer Pekka Parviainen, illustrating many of the phenomena - ordinary and exotic - discussed in the book.

This collection of more than 200 drawings by Anthony D'Attilio is an exciting introduction to the complex and fascinating field of plant and animal marine life. No matter which seashore you live near or visit on vacation, you will probably find some of its inhabitants represented in these pages. Mr. D'Attilio prepared these drawings carefully and accurately, but in the interest of making the plates as decorative as possible he did allow himself some artistic license. Thus the specimens on any one plate are not necessarily to be found in the same body of water, and occasionally their relative sizes are not strictly correct. You may be surprised, when you look at the covers of this book, by the wide range of colors and tones nature has subtly intermingled in her marine creatures. You can imitate this natural coloration, or you can use your imagination in selecting colors. The contour lines provided in the drawings can be used as guidelines for the subtle blending of colors, as in nature, or as sharp demarcation lines between areas of flat color, if your aim is more decorative. Whichever method you choose, enjoy coloring and creating for yourself either true-to-life depictions of marine plants and animals, or more fanciful creatures for framing and collages. The varied specimens in this collection represent some of the most common and some of the most exotic forms of sea life in the oceans of the world. We hope these drawings and the identifications of the creatures will lead you to a deeper interest in this fascinating area. You may then want to consult the more detailed field guides to marine life in your own area.
