The Yorkshire Dales: Landscape and Geology (Landscape & Geology)
The Yorkshire Dales: Landscape and Geology (Landscape & Geology)

This book is the first in an exciting new series that tells the story of some of Britain's most beautiful landscapes. Written with the general reader - the walker, the lover of the countryside - firmly in mind, this opens the door onto a fascinating story of ancient oceans, forests, shallow seas and ice. Over millions of years, the stunning limestone landscape has been laid down at the bottom of tropical seas, deformed by movements in the earth's crust and shaped giant glaciers and, in our own time, the simple effects of rivers and rain water.

The Yorkshire Dales
The Yorkshire Dales

Mark Denton captures the drama and beauty of one of England's most treasured landscapes. From broad, open dales to bleak uplands and isolated high hills, Mark Denton's panoramic camera reveals the ever-changing light on both renowned and unheralded places. An essay by Richard Mabey describes his first acquaintance with the Dales, and his growing understanding and appreciation of this unique landscape.

This is the concluding volume in Mark Denton's Yorkshire Trilogy, following Yorkshire Coast and Yorkshire Moors and Wolds. Mark Denton is one of Britain's most acclaimed young landscape photographers, described by Joe Cornish as 'one of the few photographers to have mastered the large panoramic camera, and he uses it to capture landscape in all its drama, depth and colour ... the result is a unique body of work.'
