Review:

[a] truly gorgeous book ... And if you've never been to Strangford Lough before, a leaf through this beautifully produced coffee-table book will show you what you've been missing. 'As good as Ian's words are, they have to bow to Alain Le Garsmeur's luminous photographs, 160 of them, which capture the glory of summer, the bleak beauty of winter, the hope of spring and the horror of an autumn storm racing across the lough towards you.' A timely reminder of just how important the lough is and of its natural wonder.
