Oregon, My Oregon: Land of Natural Wonders

49150953. sx318

Oregon, My Oregon is a beautifully illustrated photographic guide to Oregon, its natural beauty, and sightseeing destinations. Released 13th Oct 2020 by Workman on their Timber Press imprint, it's 236 pages and available in hardcover format. 

I enjoyed this photographic homage to Oregon and the Pacific Northwest coast of the USA. In addition to the stunning variety of the natural landscapes featured, there are a number of photos which also highlight the urban areas. 

The photos are grouped roughly geographically by region: Oregon coast, Portland area, Mount Hood and the Columbia River, Southern Oregon, Willamette Valley, Central Oregon, and Eastern Oregon. Each of the areas of the book are color coded and the photograph legends have color coded dots. 

The photos are beautiful: clear and colorful. The text is minimal. There is no index or table of contents in the electronic review copy provided. There is, however, a nifty technical specification gallery with the specs of each photo including camera model, aperture, focal length, shutter speed, and ISO.

This would make a lovely coffee table book, gift for a travel-loving friend, nature photographer, or library acquisition. 

Four stars.

Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.
