Synopsis

A spectacular new perspective on the Lake District from the award-winning mountain photographer and filmmaker Alastair Lee, Lake District Mountain Landscape is a work of extraordinary commitment and originality. With an emphasis on the mountain heights, Lee captures the otherworldliness and majesty of the 'English Alps' in all seasons and conditions. An experienced climber, Lee brings all his skill and tenacity to the task of capturing sunrises from the top of the highest peaks, moonlight on icy slopes and seas of cloud filling the familiar valleys of Lakeland. Ascents of seemingly unscaleable crags like Pillar and Gimmer Crag are celebrated, and 360 degree panoramas in ethereal upland light from high peaks including Helvellyn, Bowfell and Great Gable are complemented by a series of identifying sketches. In a book which will be full of revelations for Lakelanders and visitors alike, Alastair Lee renews and redefines the magic of this much loved landscape
