The Broads National Park, which extends inland from the coast of Norfolk and Suffolk, is
recognised as one of the country’s most important landscapes. Those who visit this
extraordinary area seldom forget the experience, and many return annually for holidays on
Those lucky enough to live close by will have an even deeper appreciation of
the place, finding themselves drawn back to explore more of its delights time and again.
Like many of us, the photographers whose work appears in this address book have fallen for
the beauty and variety of scenery to be found within The Broads National Park, and each has
been able to find a scene or scenery to arrest their interest. However, their skills usually far
surpass those of us who happily snap away in order to record a moment. Their photography
comes at a price, often with years of training and experience in the best use of complex and
expensive equipment, with early starts and endless hours waiting for the right moment, and
above all with an artist’s eye in knowing what will make a good photograph.
These photographers are part of a long tradition of those who have been inspired to capture
the elusive qualities of light, atmosphere and character that make The Broads so special. Their
work has been selected to portray something of the
variety and range of contemporary photography
being created today. Each in their own distinctive
way, captures the essence of the place.
Address books tend to be well used and have a long
life. Along with important contact details, they keep
track of the user’s friends and acquaintances, tracing
their lives over time and from place to place.
And, if properly attended to, an address book eventually
becomes a journal in itself, and an attractive
and permanent keepsake.
Whether bought for your own use, or received as a
gift, this address book with its superb illustrations will
provide years of pleasure.
