Stunning landscapes, fascinating people, amazing animals, unexpected glimpses of the usual and unusual are a soothing antidote to the news of natural disasters, conflict, political upheaval, and social unrest that fills our lives. "Visions of Earth" showcases the many ways that our world is a marvel to behold and a privilege to call home. Begun as a regular monthly photo gallery in the National Geographic Magazine, "Visions of Earth" is now rated the Number 1 feature among readers.
