About the Author

Heinrich van den Berg is ranked 8th internationally in the Wikipedia Wildlife Photographer of the Year ratings (according to the number of images awarded in the competition).

He is a brilliant photographer, but what sets him apart from every other wildlife photographer is the unique way in which he presents his images. His captions add depth to his images, while the images at the same time add depth to the captions. Together they form a piece of art that is original and unequaled in the world of wildlife photography.

Moods of Nature is the fourth in his Nature Art Book series . It is available in two editions: The Elite Edition (limted to 500 numbered and signed copies), and the Standard Edition .
