9780711228696: Windermere

When Wainwright made his first visit to the Lake District in the summer of 1930, aged just twenty-three, he was unprepared for what he found when he left the train at Windermere station. 'That week changed my life,' he wrote years later. 'It was the first time that I'd looked upon beauty.' His moment of epiphany came when he viewed Lake Windermere from the vantage point of Orrest Head. Millions of people have followed in Wainwright's footsteps. Indeed, for a lot of people, Windermere is the Lake District. But even when Ambleside, Bowness, Windermere and Lakeside are heaving with visitors, there's still room to roam - on the shoreline, on the lake itself and on the fells which surround it. This book is a celebration of the lake as it is today. John Morrison's photographs capture the lake and its surroundings in many different moods: showing not just what the lake looks like, but what it feels like too.

Review:

Stunning photographs of Windermere's many moods greet readers of John Morrison's latest book...These are not all picture postcard shots. Mr Morrison himself comments that the dark, brooding skies of many images are not the stuff of tourist board literature. These images, however, are some of the most engaging in the book, showing Windermere to be a dynamic, bustling landscape, capturing not just its look, but its atmosphere...The juxtaposition between the solitary figures and the more populous images contributes to the enduring theme of Mr Morrison's fine book: that the lake is very much what people make of it - a resource to enjoy in all its untainted glory but also one that brings people together. Westmorland Gazette A celebration of the lake as it is today. John Morrison's photographs capture the lake and its surroundings in many different moods: showing not just what the lake looks like, but what it feels like too. His pictures are stunning. I particularly like his photo of two swans taking off from Waterhead in the evening light. Magical! Keswick Reminder A rounded and very affectionate portrait made all the more interesting by the addition of short essays spelling out his own love - and occasional dislikes - of the lake. Cumbria In celebration of the lake as it is today, Morrison's photographs capture the lake and its surroundings in many different moods, showing not just what the lake looks like, but what it feels like too. Best of British This excellent 'photo/essay' book captures the unique atmosphere, flavour and essence of this special corner of 'The Lakes' ... there is a plethora of superb photography which will encourage readers to get out and explore the wonders a short distance from our doorsteps. This book should find a home on the bookshelf of any lover of the Lakes and 'the North country'. Garstang Courier Author and photographer Morrison lives in Windermere, so who better to show us not just what the lake down the road looks like, but what it feels like, too. Its appeal has been appreciated for generations and in this superb book, we can keep on looking on its beauty. Manchester Evening News
