John Morrison portrays Yorkshire in a variety of moods, throughout the seasons. Trees in blossom with the candyfloss colours of spring; summer in the Dales, among the wildflower meadows, with cumulus clouds stacked up like scatter cushions; autumn in broadleaved woodland, with a carpet of fallen leaves; and finally winter, which seems to go on for ever under leaden skies, before you wake up one morning to find the world has been washed clean in the night, with a sky of unclouded blue.

Some views will be familiar: cricket at Headingley, the Victorian elegance of Harrogate, the River Ouse at York and the silhouette of Ingleborough, one of the Three Peaks. Other pictures explore less obvious landmarks. All of them will bring a nod of recognition to lovers of England’s biggest county, while making exiled Yorkshire folk shake their heads and wonder why on earth they chose to leave.

Born and raised in Leeds, John Morrison has published more than 40 books as a writer and landscape photographer. He has previously provided the evocative pictures for the Halsgrove titles: Moods of the Yorkshire Dales, Moods of the Brontë Moors, A Portrait of Leeds and A Portrait of Bradford. Now, having moved to a shack on the shore of Windermere, he leads a life of almost monastic austerity.

Portrait of LeedsPortrait of Leeds - £12.95
John Morrison’s affectionate and revealing photographic survey of his home city does not just concentrate on the new Leeds, but also offers glimpses of the older, more traditional cityscape of back-to-back terraces, former textile mills and factories along the revamped waterfront of the River Aire.
A Portrait of YorkA Portrait of York - £12.95
Today, the modern city of York extends well beyond the ancient heart, and dramatic new buildings have played a part in the quality of the landscape and street scene.
