Cornish's images of this unspoilt shore are full of subtle colour, atmospheric light and feathery textures. It's a book to gaze at and be transported by.||
To bring this beauty to life takes a special eye and a brilliant talent. Thanks then to the photographer Joe Cornish. In fact, please take a bow Joe, for in your recent book you have brought together a glorious collection of photographic scenes that will surely move all of us who have a knowledge, however intimate or fleeting, of this gloriously remarkable coastline, and perhaps equally significantly, inspire those of you who have yet to appreciate its glorious temperament.||
A well-crafted collection of images that capture Northumberland's special atmosphere as well as its many and varied charms.||
His photographic journey covers many subjects familiar to Northumbrian readers but it is given added dimension and impact by compositional perfection and quality of light.||
A fine example of the breed - few could do this type of photography better [3 stars]||
Capturing the beauty of the Northumberland Coast is a challenge taken on by many photographers, but few do it so well as so well as acclaimed landscape specialist Joe Cornish.

I was particularly keen on inspiration for places to visit with my camera, and the book certainly serves that really well. The only reason I mark it down as four stars and not five is that unlike First Light there is much less discussion of technique - in particular in First Light the end of the book has thumbnails of each photo alongside details such as focal length, shutter speed and f-stop used in taking the image, whereas this book only gives you much more basic info.
All in all though it is crammed with extraordinary images from one of the UK's master landscape photographers and is a great collection of photos and introduction to the region.
This book contains a selection of photographs from Joe Cornish, its starts in Berwick and heads down the coast to the Tyne. As someone who visits the area on a regular basis, this is a stunning reminder of the dramatic landscape. There are some beautiful picures and they are very well presented. I would, though have liked a little more commentary. There are a few notes accompanying a handful of pictures but they are rather too brief.
This is the first book that I have bought by Joe Cornish and I would certainly keep a look out for others. Simply styled and nice to peruse on a cold afternoon.
