Overview
-

Villager Jim, the famous Peak District photographer, takes us on a journey to his very favorite places on the moors surrounding the Peak District National Park, where he lives. From wonderful wild deer to breathtaking buzzards and other birds of prey, Jim allows us a glimpse of his daily moorland travels with all the abundant wildlife that lives in that part of the world. Jim often concedes that it is his most favorite place on earth, being out alone with his camera within this unforgiving landscape, watching the sun rise on the horizon, whilst at the same time, seeing stags wander, grazing on the moorland. It is here also that many of his favorite birds of prey abound. And, of course, he is there to capture the beautiful landscape shots rolling in mists or washed in the golden light of dawn.

About The Author

Over the past few years, Villager Jim has been photographing wildlife in his garden as well as in the beautiful countryside that surrounds his home in the Derbyshire Peak District. Amongst his subjects are pictures of his own Labrador dogs, as well as farmyard animals, and the flora, fauna and spectacular landscapes around him. Having built up a huge international presence on Facebook, Villager Jim’s thousands of followers enjoy his out of the ordinary compositions and the humorous angle of his captions. Villager Jim has appeared twice on BBC’s _Countryfile_, and was the editor’s choice in the British Wildlife Photography Awards in 2013\. Winning a _Springwatch_ competition (beating 50,000 others), his images are often shown by the _Springwatch_ and _Autumnwatch_ team.

REVIEWS
-

This is the second collection of photographs by Villager Jim published by Pen and Sword - this man has a natural affinity with the natural world that encourages the animals he encounters to "pose" for him and his amazing camera work. A superb look at life in Villager Jim's back yard and surrounding countryside. The photographs are amazing!
