"This superbly produced volume is a celebration of Australian landscape photography which just happens to document the magnificent Wilsons Promontory coastal national park ... David Neilson had some good subject matter to work with but his images are quite stunning in terms of their composition, colour and contrast ... Maximum use is made of the book's large format so the photographs are displayed in all their glory ... Like many before him , David Neilson has created photographs which serve as a strong argument for the preservation of a priceless wilderness area."

Paul Burrows, ProPhoto Magazine
