From the air, stunning new images of Herefordshire
A LOOK into a garden of ‘chambers’, a glimpse of the scale of an industrial site and a view of a magnificent viaduct are among the highlights of a new book.
Michael Whitefoot, a landscape photographer based on the Herefordshire-Worcestershire border, has published a new book featuring dozens of photos from across Herefordshire.
It includes 170 postcard-style photographs of iconic scenes and landmarks in the county, many of which are spectacular aerial views.
Mr Whitefoot said: “Whether we live locally or are just visiting, there is no better reminder of our favorite places than a postcard.
“I have decided to collect my most popular Herefordshire postcards and other local photos into one volume to create a permanent memory of what is one of England’s most historic and attractive counties. ”
As well as panoramas of Hereford, the book captures towns such as Leominster, Ross-on-Wye, Ledbury and Bromyard, as well as the county’s iconic black and white villages and stunning surrounding countryside.
Other photos capture the beauty of the Malvern Hills and the many historic buildings, monuments and attractions in Herefordshire. Each chapter begins with an introduction to the areas covered.
The new book complements a similar volume of Worcestershire pictures which Mr Whitefoot launched last year.
“I hope the book will bring lasting memories of everyone’s favorite places in Herefordshire,” he said.
Herefordshire postcards are available now at Waterstones, Oakchurch, Hop Pocket, Hereford Cathedral, Tourist Information Centres, gift and card shops, and online at www.michaelwhitefoot.co.uk , where they cost £20.
