Somerset Coast from the Air
Somerset Coast from the Air
  • Description
  • Related

Somerset’s coastline looks out over the Bristol Channel northwards towards SouthWales. The Severn Estuary, which has the second largest tidal range in the world, forms part of the northern border of Somerset, serving Bristol, once the greatest trading port in the western world.

In this book we are taken on an aerial journey along the coast starting at Avonmouth, one of the most industrialised landscapes in the Westcountry, prelude to our travels in Somerset, journeying west for some 40 miles (64km) until we reach the North Devon border. Along our route are the major towns of Portishead, Clevedon,Weston Super Mare and Burnham-on-Sea, these large towns gradually giving way to villages and small harbour towns until we meet the moorland heights of Exmoor.

The principal attraction of aerial photographs is that they are literally a bird’s-eye view, allowing us to look down on the landscape from a perspective that we never normally see.

Jason Hawkes is one of the best practitioners of this genre of photography. He strives to capture an aesthetic in the images he takes, and these pictures, sometimes quite abstract in appearance, are often strikingly beautiful in their own right Jason Hawkes is one of the country’s best-known photographers specialising in aerial photography. From his base near London he travels worldwide to produce images for books, advertising and design. Since 1991 he has provided photographs for major international companies including Nike, HSBC, Ford, Rolex,Toyota and BP. The images in this book and the sister publications in the series were specially commissioned by Halsgrove.
