About the Book
'Cyprus: spring and summer' is Michael Field's own personal photographic diary around south-west Cyprus, taking in the city of Paphos and the Archeological ruins of Kato Pafos, the natural beauty of the Akamas Peninsula and the Troodos Mountains. Michael specialises particularly in the wildlife, especially butterflies and birds. However, western Cyprus is a very diverse place with archeological ruins, fruit groves, natural Gorges and an abundance of the unusual animals and insects such as the Preying Mantis and Chameleon.
Michaels personal photographic diary from late summer 2008 and spring 2010 includes many panoramas of the scenic coastline around Paphos & the Akamas Peninsula, and also details the beautiful wild flowers and the diverse and ever - changing mainland landscape.

I am an artist, photographer and sculptor. I was born in Surrey, England in 1964 and I currently am based in Cardiff, Wales (UK) with my wife Karen. I've always enjoyed painting, drawing, sculpture and then photography and I've always enjoyed being out in the countryside whether this means studying nature, going for a walk or going abroad. After school in Weybridge (Surrey) I completed a Diploma in Art & Design at Epsom College and then a BA (hons) specialising in Painting at West Surrey College (Farnham) . I re-located to the lovely landscape of Wales in 2002, making sure I was near good landscape, good cinemas and a Championship Golf Course (Celtic Manor)! My interests include landscape photography (specialising in panoramas and the Brecon Beacons National Park in South Wales), nature photography (specialising in British and European butterflies) and also golf photography. I sculpted the Ivor Allchurch monument at the Liberty Stadium in Swansea which was unveiled in 2005.
