Lake District Moods
Lake District Moods
  • Description
  • Related
The Lake District is England's largest National Park and one of its most-visited areas. It has provided inexhaustible inspiration to writers and artists for centuries, and to photographers ever since the invention of the medium. It is a testament to the boundless diversity of the district that there is still something new to be said about it. This book celebrates that diversity in over 140 superb photographs. The district's scenery encompasses ordered fields and wild ridges, busy lakes and silent mountain tarns, gentle woods and fierce crags. But variety springs equally from the turn of the seasons, the shift of the light and the ever-changing weather. Award-winning photographer Jon Sparks knows the Lake District in all its diverse moods, and captures it in images that go beyond the hackneyed chocolate-box views. There are sweeping prospects, of course, but from unexpected and often unfamiliar locations. Equally, there are images of the fabric and texture of the place: crystals in rock, ice-patterns in a frozen tarn, raindrops on moss. ISBN 184114312X, 220x240mm, hardback, 144 pages.

Lakeland Life in the 1940s and 1950sLakeland Life in the 1940s and 1950s - £24.95
Nostalgic pictures by Gwen Bertelsman show naturally the life and landscape of the Lake District in the 1940s and 1950s. There is no prejudice in her photographs, no effort to view the rural scene through rose-tinted spectacles. These are images of the everyday and include the period of the Second World War, when life in the Lake District was anything but ordinary, but possessed an intensity never seen before or again. Text by Martin Varley.
