Book Description

17 July 2011 National Trust
Over a hundred years ago, the National Trust was founded to preserve places of historic interest and natural beauty in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Today it protects around 252,000 hectares (623,000 acres) of land and over 700 miles (1126km) of coastline. This exquisite collection reveals the true beauty of Britain's countryside and coastal heritage. The variety is unmatched from the fells and lakes of Cumbria and the wilderness wetlands of the Fens to the granite columns of Giant's Causeway and the spectacular beaches of the the Cornish Coast. This collection is not just a celebration of Britain's diverse and extraordinary beauty but also the photographer's art. Three leading British landscape photographers capture unforgettable images of Britain's remarkable natural heritage, and encourage the preservation of our unique countryside and coastline for future generations.

2.0 out of 5 stars 14 years old....... and it shows 30 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase
I bought this as a new book, I obviously didn't look close enough when I placed my order.

This book looks every bit as old as its fourteen years, Noton and Cornish are two of my favourite photographers and have both come a long way since this book was produced.

If you require a book to inspire you to dust down your tripod and get outdoors, go for Noton's 'full frame' or Cornish's 'A photographer at work' both are a far better spend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exquisite photos 5 Nov 2013
I bought this book yesterday (4 Nov 2013), for only 8.00(new), at a National Trust property, the bargain price being a significant factor in a somewhat impulse purchase.

I am a no-more-than-competent amateur photographer and have a number of books of this sort, to give me ideas both of photographic composition and of places to visit. I have to say that this book is quite beautiful, with consistently excellent photos throughout. There are lots of panoramas which generally work quite well on a two-page spread. The single review complains about the quality of the paper, and possibly there are different printing locations for different territories, but my copy has excellent paper for the price.

Yes, it might have been nice to have technical details for the photographs in a separate section. Also the pages are - quite unusually - unnumbered, though that's not really crucial for this book. Quite simply, the book is a visual delight, particularly for gloomy autumn/winter days. Very highly recommended if you appreciate high quality landscape photography.
