In a spectacular new ebook focusing on the Cairngorms, Peter Cairns showcases some of his favourite wildlife and landscape images from Britain's wildest National Park. With a foreword by Duncan Bryden, the Convener of the Cairngorms National Park Authority, the book reflects some of Peter's most cherished moments of the last fifteen years, providing details not only of how and where he took each image, but more importantly, why. Based in the Cairngorms National Park, Peter is an award-winning nature photographer with a deep fascination for our relationship with the natural world. His photography and writing covers a diverse range of topical conservation stories, especially those with a human dynamic. Peter authors regular illustrated features and has previously co-authored five hardback books. He was one of the co-founders of the widely acclaimed Tooth & Claw predator project and served as Business Director for Wild Wonders of Europe. He is presently Project Coordinator of 2020VISION, one of the most ambitious conservation photography projects ever undertaken.
