More Than a Rock: Essays on Art, Creativity, Photography, Nature, and Life from Rocky Nook is a deeply passionate and personal book by teacher and photographer, Guy Tal. In this beautifully photographed book, Tal shares his thoughts and experiences as an artist who seeks to express more in his images than the mere appearance of the subject portrayed.

Covering topics such as the art of photography, approaches to landscape photography, and the experiences of a working photographic artist, Tal's essays include reflections on nature and man's place in it, living a meaningful life, and living as an artist in today's world. In showing how creative landscape photography expresses the photographer's vision as it relates to the natural aesthetics of the world around him, Tal demonstrates how visual art is distinct from the mere representation of beautiful natural scenes.

The book is intentionally non-technical, and instead focuses on philosophy, nature, and visual expression. It is written for photographers who have a passion and an interest in creative photography. Anyone interested in the writings of a full-time working artist, or pursuing their work as art, or in need of inspiration will benefit from reading this book.

"Some images look like things, while others feel like things; some images are of things, while others are about things...A creative image is not a record of a scene nor a substitute for a real experience. Rather, it is an experience in itself - an aesthetic experience - something new that the artist has given the world, rather than a contrived view of something that already existed independent of them." - Guy Tal

"Guy Tal's photography is thoughtful, compassionate, and poetic; it is no wonder then that his writings evoke similar feelings in me. If you want to be a better camera user, read your manual. If you want to be a stronger, deeper photographer, read Guy Tal." - David duChemin
