Book Description

4 Mar 2010
A spectacular new perspective on the Lake District from the award-winning mountain photographer and filmmaker Alastair Lee, Lake District Mountain Landscape is a work of extraordinary commitment and originality.



With an emphasis on the mountain heights, Lee captures the otherworldliness and majesty of the 'English Alps' in all seasons and conditions. An experienced climber, Lee brings all his skill and tenacity to the task of capturing sunrises from the top of the highest peaks, moonlight on icy slopes and seas of cloud filling the familiar valleys of Lakeland. Ascents of seemingly unscaleable crags like Pillar and Gimmer Crag are celebrated, and 360 degree panoramas in ethereal upland light from high peaks including Helvellyn, Bowfell and Great Gable are complemented by a series of identifying sketches.



In a book which will be full of revelations for Lakelanders and visitors alike, Alastair Lee renews and redefines the magic of this much loved landscape

Product Description

Review

Photographs that you could spend a weekend lingering over… Lake District: Mountain Landscape was more than five years in the making and it's clear that it was a labour of love. (TGO: The Great Outdoors)

Alastair captures the otherworldliness and majesty of the English 'Alps' in all seasons and conditions. (Grange Now!)

This beautiful 'coffee-table' collection of photographs is probably the most stunning I have ever received for review. Few photographers have produced such evocative pictures.For young rock climbers the startling and dangerous climbs in the chapter Mountain Craft are inspirational...This superb book is one which Alastair Lee should be very proud to have put into the literary/ photographic market place. This stunnning volume is a gift to be treasured and enjoyed for years. I will certainly treasure mine. (Keswick Reminder)

Lovers of the lake District will be delighted. (Newcastle Journal)

Jaw-droppingly stunning views of Lake District fell tops feature in this quite breathtaking book from award-winning photographer Alastair Lee. No-one leafing through this collection of inspirational images can fail to be impressed by the mood and majesty of the mountains that Lee has managed to capture through his lens. A gem of a publication that will shine like a beacon from the shelves of any bookshop that stocks it. (Westmorland Gazette)

Alastair Lee's camera paints the landscape. Before his lens the solid mountains that are so familiar become strange and different, the landscape of another place, another world. This is ultimate photography. Aliatair Lee's vision of the Lakeland Fells is one thatstands alongside the finest artisticinterpretations of our landscape. Lake District Mountain Landscape is an exceptionally beautiful book. (Cumberland News)

Alastair Lee's vision of the Lakeland Fells is one that stands alongside the finest artistic interpretations of our landscape… An exceptionally beautiful book. (Whitehaven News)

5 Stars: Lee has taken an oversaturated subject and shown it to us anew with complete originality and extraordinary vision. You will be surprised that this sort of landscape exists in England and that no-one has shown it to us in this way before. (Amateur Photographer)

Excellent collection of photography that offers new perspectives on the familiar landscapes of the Lake District. A fine addition to Frances Lincoln's catalogue. (Geographical)

Probably one of the best books on the Lake District of recent years and will be an inspiration to both photographers and walkers who might be encouraged to climb to the higher levels toget a peek at the peaks Lee has captured, and captured so well. (Longridge News)

A remarkable collection vividly capturing the magic of this stunning landscape; it seduces the eye over virtually every page. (Cumbria)

Capturing the majesty of the mountains of the Lake District in all their glory. (Outdoor Photography)

Sublime panoramas of peaks and valleys. (Time Out)

A work of extraordinary commitment and originality. (Lake District Herald)

4.0 out of 5 stars On top of the world 18 Mar 2010
By westmer
Format:Hardcover
Yet another book of Lakeland photos? Yes but this one's special. Its photographic quality is second to none and it has an unusual aesthetic, in that it sees the Lake District from the viewpoint of the mountain walker - that's to say 2,000 feet up, not from the handy layby.

It's still a coffee table book - but one that most Lakeland afficionados will enjoy.
