Robert is a virtuoso photographer, an Associate of the Royal Photographic Society and a chartered natural scientist. As well as beautiful landscape and rural photography, his macro work of insects and night photography adds a great deal of variety to his book.
One special feature of Robert’s book is an extended introduction which describes the geology, rivers, biology, ecology, and history of Wiltshire, including ancient monuments, churches, transport links, farming, landscape gardens and art. Crop Circles are discussed and if you are not from Wiltshire you will learn the history of the term, Moonraker.
