Photography and the outdoors could have been made for each other. This book is about making the most of that connection. Outdoor enthusiasts who want their photographs to do full justice to the quality of their outdoor experiences need look no further. Building on the foundations of the original Cicerone guide to outdoor photography, this second edition has been rewritten from the ground up, and expanded to cover a wide range of outdoor activities on land, in and on the water, in the air and in extreme environments. Fully up-to-date with the latest digital developments, it is naturally illustrated with a host of stunning images. Professional outdoor photographers Jon Sparks and Chiz Dakin introduce and explain essential technical concepts in the clearest possible language. The emphasis is on practical, realistic advice for people who want to take better photographs of what they like doing best, while still enjoying it to the max.
From the famous castle to St George's Quay, Jon Sparks takes us on a tour of Lancaster, explaining the history behind the well-known landmarks of this historic town. Lancaster has lost a few treasures over the centuries since its foundations as a Roman settlement, yet it has retained much of its cultural charm, with sympathetic restoration of the quay and new architectural projects. Today, some areas are totally recognisable, but many beloved features have remained unchallenged and unchanged.
