    Scottish photographer David Yarrow has produced almost 90 black and white up-close pictures of wildlife in harsh, natural habitats. He explains his experience: After several mornings working with the same pride in Amboseli (National Park in Kenya), a lioness walks straight towards my scented remote-control camera unit. The power of the image is enhanced by the clean and flat background.

    A 10-week-old baby gorilla in the Kwitonda troop shows his innocence and lack of familiarity with humans. Dense rainforest can offer lighting conditions that transcend more exposed canvases at the Volcanoes National Park, Rwanda.

    This abstract shot employing light and line has been a personal goal for some time. Grevy's zebra, which is increasingly rare, is the best zebra option for this image because the animal is not as skittish as some of its cousins and also because the eyelashes are more pronounced, in Lewa (Wildlife Conservancy), Kenya.

    A bull elephant approaches my unprotected remote-control camera in the dusty bowl of the Amboseli. The elephant stopped inches away from the camera as he was uncomfortable with the noise of the shutter. The camera and this elemental image were saved in Amboseli, Kenya.

    The dominant male razorback in his troop looks at me with total contempt. Quite right too: I am just a "here today gone tomorrow" photographer who has invaded his personal space on a quiet Sunday, Volcanoes National Park, Rwanda.

    A caring penguin chick helps another to climb an icy slope at the colony. During the day the chicks gather together in what have been dubbed "crèches" and go through the day?s routine under the supervision of a couple of adults in Snow Hill, Antarctica.

    Polar bears stand their ground in a confrontation on the shores of Hudson Bay (in northeastern Canada). These clashes are common around Cape Churchill, but happen nowhere else in the world, not even 25 miles to the west in Cape Churchill, Manitoba.

    Long telephoto lenses are sadly necessary here as it is not legally possible to get too close to the bears, but then again this ruling is probably in everyone's interest, Cape Churchill, Manitoba.

    This was my one moment of real fear during the assignments within this book, a head on encounter with an adult brown bear.
