The subject is nature. Not big vistas for the most part, more like something you might call "medium intimate"--lots of trees and bushes, plus a few rocks, one waterfall, one photo devoted just to a cloud, etc.
Some of the photos are unbelievably crisp, for example two of golden aspens against the sky. Several have stark contrasts, for example a tree with green bark against the orange leaves of a tree behind it. The effect is electric. Many of the photos have big, bold colors, yet Burkett doesn't seem often to resort to sunsets to tint his pictures. He uses no filters and does no cropping.
This is an expensive book and it rarely shows up at a discount. I don't pay full price for books normally but I laid my money down for this one. It is the gem of my collection, and if I couldn't get another one, I wouldn't part with it for $1000. Go to Mr. Burkett's website and check out the samples. They should convince you better than I can.
If you need to see that real beauty is possible in this world, then this is the book for you.
POSTSCRIPT: Don't buy an expensive used copy of Burkett's books when you can get a copy at list price ($65) from his website. Amazon should stock these.
