A Year on the Moor is a unique photographic account of life on and around a grouse moor. The author was given unlimited access to record the grouse and other species throughout the year, their habitat and its management, the shooting season, and the people who work on the moor and depend upon it for their livelihoods. These extraordinary and beautiful photographs capture and record some of the greatest grouse years of modern times.The photographs take us through the seasons as those that work on the moor see them; the harshness of winter, the constant battle against disease and vermin, the unpredictable weather, the burning of the heather, the new life of spring and the importance of the 'Glorious Twelfth'. This superb book is the culmination of seven years of travelling to and from the north, capturing thousands of images, processing, sorting and selecting the very best. The resulting images reflect the author's respect for grouse and the moor in all their wildness and beauty.
