It was easy to read and gave a great insight into a great photographer at work, the accompanying images really show how the best of the landscape is captured and the thought process behind them.
A lovely book to pick up and browse through at any time as it it split up into small sections on each area covered.
One real let down in this book is the abundance of spelling errors, shame on those who proof read the text.
It takes a real generosity of spirit to open up the intricacies of how you work and the gamble has paid off. Instead of being a slave to technology, the book instead shows the photographer using technology as a tool to develop the creative processes and explores how photography can deepen our understanding of the physical world about us. It's a book that I will dip back into when I need inspiration or want to reflect on the photographic process. Nice one.
