"In this dazzling book of visual wonders, National Geographic reveals a world very few will have the chance to see for themselves. Shot by some of the world's finest photographers, Rarely Seen features striking images of places, events, natural phenomena, and manmade heirlooms seldom seen by human eyes. It's all here- 30,000-year-old cave art sealed from the public; animals that are among the last of their species on Earth; volcanic lightning; giant crystals that have grown to more than 50 tons; the engraving inside Abraham Lincoln's pocket watch. With an introduction by National Geographic photographer Stephen Alvarez, whose work has taken him from the Peruvian Andes to the deepest caves of Papua New Guinea, Rarely Seen captures once-in-a-lifetime moments, natural wonders, and little-seen objects from the far reaches of the globe."

Here's one filled with places that we'd really love to get to, but would likely require a job with National Geographic or a pilot's license.

Fantastic book, Showed how beautiful our earth is. You can't help but believe in a creator after you see the pictures. I bought one for my son's anniversary. The book is available on Amazon for $23.

I'm obviously been watching too many National Geographical TV shows. I think I've seen all these gorgeous scenes before. This is a fine, classy coffee table book, but the challenge is out: nature photographers of the world - we need so much more of this quality of work. Our beautiful planet deserves all the beauty shots she can get.
