These stunning coffee table books are sure to be conversation-starters. “Four Seasons of Yosemite: a Photographer’s Journey,” by Mark Boster (hardcover, Los Angeles Times, 2011, 125 pages, $34.95). In more than 100 stunning photographs, Boster brings the eye of a 21st Century photographer and captures the magic of the national park’s icons — Half Dome, Yosemite Falls, El Capitan and others — in color that Ansel Adams had celebrated in black and white.
