This magnificent collection of photographs is a unique portrayal of the British landscape by one of the finest landscape photographers of our day. Here is a mysterious land - a land of ancient stones and windswept marshes, mountains and menacing cloudscapes, a flooded tree, a row of sheep, a graveyard under snow. From the ruins of Skara Brae to the dunes of Camber Sands, from the mists of Glencoe to a moonlit Avebury, Fay Godwin shows us the landscapes both primeval and man-made. - jacket.
