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.
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!
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 Amazon.com 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.
