The Lake District National Park is an area of
outstanding beauty and perfection of scale. It
contains rugged fells, dales, lakes, tarns and
wooded valleys which combine to create
spectacular and tightly packed
mountain scenery. Seen through the seasons
the area offers an unending variety of interest
especially for painters and photographers.
After the critically acclaimed success of his
book of walks, Discover the Lake District (Halsgrove),
Jerry Rawson has now turned his attention
to creating a collection of panoramic
images of the area throughout all seasons.
From the golden autumnal colours of the
woods around DerwentWater, the rugged
ice-carved combes of Helvellyn to the majestic
Scafell range looking quite magnificent
when reflected inWastWater and illuminated
by the setting sun. He has captured brooding
skies, storms sweeping across the fells and the
low light of dawn and dusk illuminating the
landscape in a golden glow.
This beautifully-produced book, copiously illustrated
with over 70 of Jerry’s evocative
photographs, is an emotional response to the
landscape and It gives an exciting dimension
to the Lake District. Every image conveys the
passion and excitement he feels for the area.
The book captures the variety and glorious
scenery in one of Britain’s favourite areas.
