Karen shares the technical and practical knowledge she has built up over many years of outstanding professional work. On a glorious journey through the ever changing seasons of the Peak, this beautiful book shows which locations are at their best depending on the time of the year and under different lighting and weather conditions. - Peak Courier

Frenkel's homage to the area, with her own views and feelings about the scenes she portrays, along with technical advice for budding photographers searching for a perfect shot. - Your Leek paper

A refreshing tutorial in a book that is superb, both for amateurs wishing to improve and for all who appreciate magnificent landscapes. - BBC Countryfile

Here is a photographer deeply in touch with the landscape and occupants of the Peak. - Peak Advertiser

It all combines into something far more satisfying and inspiring than the usual glossy photo books; yet it still manages to pack in more captivating, surprising and fresh takes on a familiar British beauty spot than any book I've seen in some time. I loved it. - Dominic Bates - WALK magazine

Likely to inspire many a budding landscape photographer to pick up their camera and rush outdoors. - Amateur Photographer

A must for any keen photographer, novice or pro. The information given on each page is inspiring and can be applied to many locations, not only those in the Peak District. - Outdoor Photography

An excellent take on what is a very popular and hugely published area. I've picked up many a photographic guide to the Peak District, only to put it down rather quiickly; due to the uninteresting and drab images. But this book is far from drab. The front cover reminds me of the many hours I've spent searching for the ultimmate conditions, to be rewarded with a superb image. - TGO: The Great Outdoors
