Photographing North Wales is a photo location guidebook by Simon Kitchin.
Simon is a seasoned landscape photographer and here he shares with us his passion for North Wales and all his favourite locations to photograph in the area.
With a foreward by Iolo Williams, a Welsh wildlife enthusiast and presenter, Simon's book is well presented and has sections for different areas of North Wales; Snowdonia, Llyn Peninsula, Anglesey and Menai, North Coast and North East Wales.
As well as the area specific chapters there are also sections covering North Wales coastal sunset locations, heritage railways, historic houses, castles and gardens, shows, events and wildlife.
There is some basic information on how to get around North Wales and a seasonal highlights guide, as well as a brief introduction to the Welsh language.
Each location has a double page spread featuring one of Simon's wonderful images of the location as well as valuable information on viewpoints, how to get there, accessibility and the best time of year and day to visit.
Simon has captured some truly gorgeous images of North Wales and this book is a pleasure to look through not just as a photographer, but also as someone looking for pretty locations to visit and walk around. The information at the back about local railways, historic gardens and yearly events is ideal for those planning a holiday to the area, whether you're just taking your camera along for the ride or planning your break around it, this book certainly sells North Wales.
