About this book

The national park of Exmoor straddles the counties of Somerset and Devon in the southwest of England. Covering over 260 square miles of countryside the landscape varies from rocky outcrops to grassy hills and farmland, stretching all the way to the Devon Coast. Offering such a diverse landscape Exmoor naturally attracts visitors from all over England and beyond throughout the year. These holidaymakers enjoy the peace and tranquillity of this beautiful and sometimes remote setting.

As well as the empty and wild countryside, Exmoor accommodates several settlements including the picturesque villages of Porlock, Dulverton and Lynmouth. It is also famous for having its own native herds of Exmoor ponies that draw visitors in the hope that they may catch a glimpse of them.

Adam Burton's spectacular photographs document Exmoor's changes through the seasons, from frosty valleys in pastel hues to deep wooded combes bursting with bluebells, from secluded bays and soaring cliff headlands to dazzling autumn displays of folliage, bracken and heather.
