Looking for the Summer is a sequel to the award-winning Chased by the Light, Brandenburg's best-selling exploration of autumn in the north woods.
"This magnificent, multifaceted volume will impress readers on many levels. The second in a planned series of four titles, it captures the magnificence of the Northern Minnesota Wilderness during summer. Beginning with the solstice, Brandenburg set out daily with his digital camera to document life in the North Woods. At the end of the day, the best photograph was selected for inclusion in this book. The result is one breathtaking picture after another. Brandenburg has the versatility to draw on styles and techniques at will. The book is divided into two parts; following the portfolio of photographs is an essay taken from the photographer's field notes. The result is a wonderful discussion about the environment. A must-read for anyone interested in photography or conservation."
