9780711233485: Shore to Summit: A Photographic Guide to the Geology of Britain and Ireland

From the White Cliffs of Dover to The Old Man of Hoy, from the Giant’s Causeway to the peaks of Snowdonia, some of the world’s most striking and varied landforms are found in Britain and Ireland. Award winning landscape photographer Fran Halsall has chosen one hundred places which tell the story of how these Isles were made. Arranged in order of their formation, from the three billion year old summits of Scotland’s far north west, to Chesil Beach’s shingle shore, astounding images and accessible text tell of volcanic eruptions, the collision of continents and eons of deposits, erosions and upheavals, as well as the ways in which the landscapes of the British Isles have defined and been defined by countless generations.
