The aerial photography albums of Robert Haas, including Through the Eyes of the Gods and Through the Eyes of the Condor, have been standout titles for National Geographic, and this spectacular view of the Arctic is no exception. The colors here are brilliant, with unexpected forms and patterns, and Haas captures the wilderness and wildlife below but also the ineluctable stamp of human activity and exploitation.
