The landscape of the British Isles is one of the most diverse in the world. Within these tiny islands there is everything from wild mountains, coasts and moorlands to gentle farmland, forests and meandering rivers. Imprinted over this diversity is a rich history, visible as much in the buildings as in the shape of the landscape itself. From prehistoric monuments like Stonehenge to the vast modern motorways which sweep across the land, Britian is marked indelibly by the works of man. Jason Hawkes has spent the last year covering the country by helicopter, capturing on film a breathtaking portrayal of Britain from above. His photographs include oblique and unfamiliar approaches to famous landmarks and buildings, as well as strange and wonderful discoveries. There are stunning close-ups and striking angles, sweeping long views which capture the character of specific regions, combining to distil the essence of Britain as only arial photgraphy can. One is always aware, too, of the changing times and seasons, of the photographer's sense of humour and lightness of touch, and of his deep love of the countryside he portrays. All this is enhanced by informative captions by Jane Struthers, pinpointing and describing what each picture shows.

A stunning collection of aerial photography from high above the British Isles, offering a unique insight into the evolution of photography, mapping and the nation.

Aerial photography has been practised for as long as man has been airborne.

Each chapter details a region of Britain, highlighting key social, cultural and technological changes over the years. Grainy images and cracked screens have given way to high resolution detail. Over 100 featured subjects include: * the natural beauty of the British landscape from Snowdon to Easdale to the Needles * contemporary views from The Shard in London to Cardiff Arms Park to Belfast's Wish * historic monuments from Buckingham Palace to Stonehenge to Caerphilly Castle
