Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The British Isles are magnificent places, filled with endlessly fascinating sights, stories, and people, and they are defined and shaped by their coast. Hundreds of spectacular photographs in this book hint at the wonder of the ever-changing place where the land meets the sea—from the privileged viewpoint of the birds. From small harbors to expansive bridges, towering cliffs to seaside resorts—Coast from the Air presents a dramatic new perspective on this green and pleasant land, and shows just how beautiful, surprising, and fragile that land can be. In 20 chapters—each one focusing on a specific coastal region of the British Isles—over 200 outstanding aerial photographs portray the beauty and diversity of the coastline. From the Dingle to The Wash, from the mild seaside towns of England's south coast to the storm-lashed fishing villages of the Outer Hebrides, Coast from the Air is a true visual feast.
