8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Lucy Felthouse VINE VOICE on 27 Mar. 2009
Format: Paperback
It's quite difficult to review a book like this given it has no plot, characters or conclusion. But rest assured, it'll take your breath away. Featuring stunning photographs and details on where each was taken - this book is the story of the UK's coastline and the great work The National Trust is doing to preserve it. Most captions give the history of the place in question, when it was acquired by The Trust and what work, if any, is done to help keep the place safe and beautiful for those who wish to visit.

This book will inspire all but the most stoic couch potatoes. Those that love the outdoors and the British countryside will want to abandon everything and get out there right away! A truly stunning book and a great way to introduce places you'd perhaps never think of going before - but you will now!

This book makes you wonder why we go abroad on holiday. The photographs are fantastic, and there is information provided about the location of each image - excellent since it makes you want to skip work, junp in your car & head for the nearest shoreline.

My husband received this book as a Christmas present after he became aware of it after enjoying the BBC "Coast" series. It's full of wonderful photographs and interesting information about the UK's beautiful coastline and how the National Trust is constantly working to preserve it - of great interest to photographers and British landscape-lovers alike, whether they are National Trust members or not.

Format: Hardcover
The National Trust was formed over a hundred years ago to protect places in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, be they of historical interest or of outstanding natural beauty. This is a photographic collection of the coastlines maintained by the NT.
From the drama of the Giants Causeway to the remote Farne Islands and the splendour of the White Cliffs of Dover, this is a fantastic selection of pictures. Blue sea and stunning scenery - who needs to travel abroad ?
A lovely book, that would certainly inspire me to see more of our country.

By Amazon Customer VINE VOICE on 18 Dec. 2014
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a book that will hopefully inspire others to strive to achieve the taking of great images. There is a huge gulf between a snap shot and a carefully constructed masterpiece. This book is full of the latter and throughout the text pointers are given as to how they were taken to achieve maximum impact. It can also just be used as a really easy viewing coffee table book filled with lovely images to look at if that is all you want. But it is much, much more than that. It is a really lovely book to read and be inspired by.
