About the Author

John Perriment
goldenlight Dunmow, Essex, United Kingdom

Hi. I'm a 55 year old retired bank clerk and now have more time to devote to my writing and photography. I've been taking pictures since I was 17, mainly landscapes, and have been fortunate to have many articles and pictures published in British outdoor and photography magazines over the years. In my younger days I was also a keen hillwalker and travelled extensively throughout the British Isles, usually combining the walking with my photography. These days I spend more time closer to home, exploring the Essex countryside with my camera. I've recently taken advantage of the excellent Blurb software to design and publish my first book and I'm amazed at the quality of the printing. Thank you Blurb! To all who buy the book, I hope you enjoy reading it and looking at the pictures as much as I enjoyed creating it. Thankyou.

Des images remarquables ! Ceci dit, je ne trouve pas que la mise en page soit très bonne. Et le texte n'est-il pas un peu envahissant !
Mais un beau livre avec des images très rares !!

John, this is indeed a well thought out and informative way to display your excellent work of many years. I only wish I could get up that early in the morning! Knowing many of the locations and my attempts to capture the mood i congratulate you on your composition and eye for a picture. Perhaps I'll get that camera out again.

Your book is beautiful and inspiring. I'm saving to buy it. Every time I think I want to give up photography, I see a book such as yours and I think, 'No! I can't quit!" The light is the thing. Always the light.
