Portrait of Wiltshire
Portrait of Wiltshire
  • Description

Wiltshire is an extraordinary county in many ways. It has big skies, huge vistas and a tremendous sense of space. Wiltshire is steeped in human history but there is far more to this ancient place than Stonehenge and Salisbury Cathedral. The secret of this wonderful landscape is to be found in its amazing variety; and in over 140 glorious images Steve Day unlocks that secret in a way that has never been done before. Almost all the photographs are taken in the magical hours at dawn or dusk, in all seasons and in all weathers. Steve Day brings us a stunning selection of photographs which show us the realWiltshire at last.

Steve Day was a well-known, professional landscape, travel and nature photographer and writer. He had been the photographer for a large number of travel guides, worldwide, and had been a very popular regular contributor to the county magazine Wiltshire Life and the national Outdoor Photography magazine. His career as a freelance had lasted less than ten years when he was diagnosed with cancer in October 2001. Sadly he died in April 2003 at 54 years of age, with so many unfulfilled dreams, but also leaving a superb Wiltshire slide library of over 20,000 images. His widow,Dr SueWalker, continues to live near Salisbury and run the Wiltshire Slide Library, with a website at www.steveday.co.uk She assembled and wrote captions for this collection of powerful, evocative pictures of the county they both loved and shared.
