Whatever the subject, be it a wide Hebridean vista or
fragmentary patterns of ice on a frozen beach, Joe Cornish, with his artist's
eye and his dramatic use of light, helps us to look at it afresh and reveals new
and unsuspected beauties.
Scotland's Coast - A Photographer's Journey by Joe
Following the success of his best-selling First
Light, Joe Cornish has now turned his attention to the magnificent scenery of
Scotland's 6,000-mile coastline. He has travelled from the Mull of Galloway in
the south to the tip of Unst in the Shetlands, the northernmost point in the
British Isles, and from remote St Kilda out in the Atlantic to the Sands of
Forvie National Nature Reserve on the North Sea to capture the enormous variety
of scenery that characterises the Scottish seacoast.
Some of the sites he has photographed, like St Kilda or
the sandstone peaks overlooking Loch Torridon, belong to the National Trust for
Scotland, but many others are privately owned; some, like the majestic Cuillins
on Skye, are well-known to tourists, others are hidden coves or remote sea
stacks that few visitors will ever have seen.
In the text which accompanies his photographs he explains
the aspects of each particular landscape that made it special to him, its
geology, its flora, its history or its associations. The result is a stunning
book book which will delight Cornish's legion of admirers and all those who have
found enchantment on Scotland's wonderful coastline.
