Esler Crawford has been photographing the spectacular scenery of Northern Ireland for over thirty years. Taken from the skies, his extraordinary images create a unique portrait of the North, transforming our view of the landscape, making us see familiar and loved places anew.

This collection of over 130 brand new photographs confirms Esler Crawford's reputation as one of Ireland's leaders in aerial photography. From the rugged beauty of the Antrim coastline to the breathtaking drama of the Donegal headlands, these photographs capture the wonderfully varied patterns and textures of our landscape. The vibrant greens of the patchwork fields; the silver ribbons of the Bann and Blackwater rivers; the dynamic cityscapes of Belfast, Derry and Armagh; and the island-studded waters of Lough Erne are among the many riches that feature in this incredible aerial journey around the North.

The North: A View from the Skies is a dazzling celebration of the north of Ireland - a fitting and much anticipated sequel to the bestselling North from the Air.
