The photographs in this book have been chosen to reflect the very best of Devonís truly wonderful
countryside. From sweeping coastlines to hedge-bounded pastures, and from deep valleys to high moorland
views, this book reminds the reader just how enchanting Devon can be.
From season to season, the drama and character of the landscape is revealed through Jen Bryantís superb
photography. Panoramic vistas of well-known places are set against quiet corners of the county that have
caught the photographerís eye, each page reminding us of the Devonís unique charms.
Most of the photographs have been taken specifically for this book, with an eye to capturing the very essence
of Devon. For those lucky enough to live in the county, or for visitors to our glorious county, Perfect Devon is
indeed the perfect book.
After Jen Bryant took up photography, the most natural thing to do was to combine
her two favourite pastimes walking and taking pictures. She began her career mostly
in black and white but increasingly went over to colour.
She soon learned that the best images are made at either end of the day, although
the hours in winter, with itís low sun, can be made much more use of. She considers
it a real privilege to be out at dawn. Itís a magical time with colours not seen during
the daytime. Again, the same can be said about the evening light, which sometimes
can be unbelievable. Jen lives in beautiful North Devon.
