"Ron Rosenstock has the ability to capture landscapes that are not only breathtaking, but unique. So often, as photographers we wish to be able to take home the exact moment and image we see with our eyes, and it rarely happens. With this book, every photograph is exactly the right one. His work is amazing, and this book is not only the best landscape photography book out there by a contemporary photographer, but the poetry and creative presentation is worth every penny! Even knowing that he conducts tours to these locations makes it worth buying just to see what's possible. A top-rated visual travelogue."

"The Light of Ireland is a portfolio of twenty-five black and white photographs made in the west of Ireland over a period of nearly thirty years. Rosenstock's stunning images, rich in detail and range of tones, are exquisitely reproduced in a handsome volume in which the binding and typography contribute to its overall artistry. The few words of introduction are also carefully chosen; permitting the eloquent voice of the visual to command the attention of the reader."
