Award-winning photographer Stephen Dalton owns an 9-acre wood in Sussex and for the last 20 years has delighted in improving it, increasing its biodiversity – and simply watching it develop naturally throughout the seasons and the years.
Using his pioneering high-speed photographic techniques, Stephen shows the reader the rich diversity of plants, trees, insects, birds and animals which live there. He captures on film the developments his woodland and pond have undergone over a couple of decades and shares his passion for the woods he loves.
This delightful, informative photographic celebration will appeal to all who regularly walk throughout the seasons in their local woods, those lucky enough to own a woodland themselves, and all who dream of doing so one day.
