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.
