This unique photographic volume presents the greatest landscape views in England, including a host of secret treasure viewpoints.
They range from the famous - Roseberry Topping, Derwentwater, Durham Cathedral across the river, the Gateshead Millennium Bridge - to the lesser known. All the views are shown in full panorama. Unlike conventional formats, panoramic photography is uniquely able to reproduce the full field-of-view, the expansive sense of vision that makes these vistas such a dizzying experience.
Shot entirely with a classic panoramic camera, Mark Denton's distinctive photography is thus as close as it's possible to get to being there.
The majority of the panoramic images featured are taken at the magic hours of dusk and dawn, offering richly saturated new interpretations of England's most breathtaking scenery.
