  • Description

The Lake District, as a national park has only existed since 1951; Cumbria as a county, since 1974. But the old titles of Cumberland and Westmorland were collectively known as Cumbria for centuries and the mountainous Lakeland heart was an integral part of the regionís fabric. The national park status of the Lake District has defined the region for many visitors but Cumbria has always been a richly diverse and historic county with great rewards for those who go looking. For those who live and work here there has always been more to Cumbria than the ĎLakesí but for many visitors the bigger picture is less well known.

Cumbriaís landscapes are defined by its geography. It is literally surrounded by uniqueness Ė the vastness of Morecambe Bay to the South, the bleak Pennines to the East; Scotlandís wild borders and Hadrianís Wall to the North and the forbidding Irish Sea, washing the West coast.This book is a journey through the lands of Cumbria; a county of breathtaking beauty, grandeur and surprise. It includes the Lake District as a part of Cumbria but reveals also the less frequented landscapes of the Eden Valley, the Borders, the Solway Firth,West Cumbria, Morecambe Bay and the Eastern dales of the Lune Valley and gives a fascinating insight into arguably Englandís most beautiful county.

Dave Willis has always been a photographer. Itís what he does. Heís been other things as well but always there was a camera. Born and raised on the south coast, he quit school, left home and left the south to hitch to the lakes and become a climber and a photographer. He learnt the trade as an assistant photographer in Kendal, a press photographer on national papers and an expedition photographer in Patagonia. He returned from Chile in 1990, penniless, homeless and unemployed to set up Mountain Sport Photography Ė and is still going strong. Dave now works from his base in Shap, on Cumbriaís eastern edge, photographing outdoor life, landscape and tourism projects for Cumbria Tourism and other tourist boards, the outdoor industry, press and stock libraries. He also teaches photography.
