No matter where you live, the sun rises and sets. Along its path the light changes — sometimes imperceptibly, always gradually, and sometimes stunningly on its path from dawn to dark and back again… Dawn to Dark Photographs: The Magic of Light tells this lush story through the work of National Geographic's best visual storytellers.” –McPherson Sentinel

"From peaceful lakes and broad landscapes, to Muslim pilgrims gathering to pray, U.S. Army soldiers on patrol and a crowded New York City sidewalk on a rainy day and myriad locations and scenes in between, the photographers of National Geographic share different shades of light in stunning images from around the world." -Deseret News
