Magical British Landscapes

The colourful kingdom: Marvel at the splendid hues of our green (and pink, purple and golden) pleasant land

Britain has been called the magical land and these pictures are a true testimony to that.

Its’ spellbinding beauty has inspired writers, poets and many others who have graced this colourful land.

William Shakespeare even famously described Britain as ?this sceptred isle?, a ?precious stone set in the silver sea?.

But no words can possibly describe the awe inspiring beauty of this enchanted countryside.

From the soft rolling hills of the South Downs to the forbidding mountains of the Scottish highlands, Britain is blessed with some of the most varied and magical landscapes in the world.

And its utterly amazing beauty could hardly be better revealed than in the stunning snaps shown below.

Taken as part of the 2020 Vision project, these landscapes reveal Britain’s breathtaking scenery in all its impressive splendour.

Each of the powerful images was taken as part of an initiative that saw 20 photographers spend 20 months in the field documenting 20 key habitats in Britain.

So scroll down through the pictures and be prepared to have your breath taken away.
