Our connection to the English landscape dates back centuries. The landscape is an integral part of the English identity and has been ever since the days of the great landscape painters Turner and Constable in the 18th century.

Paul Arthur has huge experience creating wonderful images of the English landscape. On this page you’ll find shots of sites such as Portland Bill, Whitby Pier, Porth Nanven in Cornwall and the Peak District in Derbyshire.
