The castles, mountains, beaches, lighthouses and waterfalls of North Wales, including its five UNESCO World Heritage sites, have been captured by photographer Simon Kitchin in his book, Photographing North Wales.

Land of myths, legends and mystical beasts, North Wales is rugged and mysterious with beautiful beaches, tumbling rivers and, of course, the mountains, lakes and waterfalls of Snowdonia.

The dramatic landscape, which has inspired artists, writers and scientists from RS Thomas to Charles Darwin, has now been captured in Photographing North Wales by Simon Kitchin, which is published by fotoVUE.

As Welsh naturalist and television presenter Iolo Williams writes in the foreword to Kitchin’s book: “North Wales is like an unpredictable best friend, sometimes sunny, sometimes gloomy, sometimes dangerous and unpredictable, sometimes light and welcoming. The art of the photographer is to capture these ever-changing moods using the landscape and its characters. This book has done just that.”
