The most stunning images of the British Isles are collected in this look at the winners of the seventh annual Landscape Photographer of the Year competition
Artists have always strived to capture the unique beauty and diversity of the British landscape, and in the 21st century, this small island continues to provide photographers with an astonishing source of inspiration. From classic shots of the verdant countryside of England, Wales, and the rugged Scottish Highlands to the iconic structures of Britain's industrial and urban landscapes, this magnificent collection, showcasing both the very best of Britain and the very best photographic talent, cannot fail to please. Every image in the book is accompanied by the photographer's personal account of the story behind the picture, in his or her own words. There are tales of chance encounters, of snapshots in time where the moment just had to be seized, and of long hours spent exposed to the elements waiting for the opportunity to capture the perfect picture, which all too often turns out to be the final frame of the day. The book also features a special section on technical information, detailing the equipment and techniques used by the photographers, adding a practical resource to this outstanding collection of images of the British landscape.
Charlie Waite exhibits and sells his work worldwide; leads photographic workshop tours all over the world with his company, Light and Land; and lectures on photography.
