Format: Hardcover
A collection of stunning black and white photographs themed across highland, coastline and woodland.
I've seen loads of books with Scottish landscape as the subject, and it's hard to go wrong. However, the range and precision in this collection is remarkable, and the monochromatic images have a surreal and abstract quality.
As the author writes in the introduction:
"The removal of colour from a familliar scene instantly introduces an abstract quality to the image - it forces us to use our imagination. In a black and white photograph, familiar scenes in nature are transformed into an elegant world of shapge, form, texture and light where our imagination is permitted to roam."
Spot on. I'm a rubbish photographer myself, but these pictures inspire you to get out there into the wilderness and take something back with you. I could look at them for hours, really.

Format: Hardcover
This is what Black & White landscape photography is all about.

Pin sharp, beautifully toned images,of the most beautiful wee country in the world.(Scotland, in case you were wondering).

Craig McMaster has produced a collection of photographs that make me want to stop being too lazy to get up in the morning, & get out in to the hills. I think anyone seeing these pictures will feel the same. In fact, where are my walking boots......

craig mcmaster is a great photographer and this book shows it, it covers, highland, woodland, and coastline of scotland in beautifull b+ w all of the images where taken using a 5x4 view camera with a tripod so that is dedication for you! humping that gear around scotland, but it must have been worth it for the beautifull images he has captured, well recommended.

Cover was stained 3 Jan 2013
By lily cocetta - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
It wasn't in the best condition when I received it. I did get it used but I wish they had been forth coming about the cover. The interior pages were in fine condition. They are beautiful images of a Scotland one doesn't normally think about. The images are moody, graphic and beautiful. I've framed a few of them.
