Guide Review - Book Review: "Alabama Impressions"

Robert P. Falls, Sr. has published a beautiful picture book of "Alabama Impressions." Falls, a Guntersville resident, is a professional wildlife, nature and travel photographer and this book is proof that he knows how to capture the mood and emotion of a photo.

Falls has had his work appear in National Geographic Books, Abbeville Publishing, National Wildlife Federation and the Audubon Society plus many magazine. The U.S. Postal Service has used one of his images for a postage stamp.

Falls has chosen picturesque scenes from throughout the state to show the beauty and personality of Alabama. It is rare to find such a classy book where every photograph is a masterpiece. "Alabama Impressions" would make a great gift not only for out-of-state visitors, but long-time Alabamians. This book is very reasonably priced. Judge for yourself--for this book, seeing is believing.
