Kent in Winter
Kent in Winter
  • Description
  • Related

Kent is a county of broad views and historic sights, characterful towns and ancient villages. At any time of year the county is charming and picturesque, but in winter frost and snow brings a stunning added dimension to the Kent scene.

The magical days leading up to Christmas are transformed as Bluewater Shopping Centre is ablaze with festive lights, Canterbury Cathedral is decorated with a life-sized Nativity and Christmas carols hang in the crisp night air.

And then the harsher days of winter proper set in with freezing temperatures, ice, snow, frost, arctic winds and swirling mists. At times this can be magnificently bleak, but at others sun, snow and bright blue skies are the ingredients for a beautiful and uplifting picture.

Wildlife also becomes more approachable as animals and birds stock up on food, and offer perhaps the best opportunity for close contact in the whole of the year. By mid-March the temperatures begin to crawl back into double figures, spring flowers emerge from their thawing slumber, and bursting buds, croaking frogs and longer sunny days herald the end of winterís reign for another year.

All this and more is captured in 140 superbly evocative images by renowned Kent photographer Andreas Byrne to tell the colourful tale of Kent in winter.

Andreas Byrne is a landscape photographer based in New Barn, Kent. Andreas is passionate about photography and this is his fourth book on Kent published by Halsgrove. He sells his pictures to commercial and retail calendar companies, greetings cards, and is a regular contributor to Outdoor Photography magazine. He was highly commended in the BBC Wildlife of the Year Competition 2008.

Imprint: Halsgrove. ISBN 978 0 85704 052 7, hardback, 214x230mm, 144 pages. Published October 2010.

The Kent & East Sussex RailwayThe Kent & East Sussex Railway - £14.99
Through 140 full colour images Hugh Nightingale takes a photographic journey along what is arguably the most eccentric, and quite possibly the most scenic, preserved railway in England. His collection will be an unending delight, not only for those who know and love the Kent & East Sussex Railway, but for all who appreciate steam in its natural setting.
Portrait of KentPortrait of Kent - £14.99
Andreas Byrne has been inspired by his native county to produce a masterly view of Kent in all its moods. From the golden sands of Margate to the dramatic white cliffs at Dover, and from calm over the marshes to stormy winter skies over the shingle beaches of Dungeness. Inland, he captures the atmosphere of the countryside from the North Downs with their rolling chalk hills to the woodlands of the Weald, and in between evocative country churches in cornfields and iconic oast houses under wispy blue skies.
Kent from the AirKent from the Air - £14.99

There can be no better way of appreciating the many glories of Kent than to view the county from above.
