Colours of Suffolk in the media ...
Suffolk is a county alive with colour. Situated in East Anglia, it offers miles of stunning coastline where picturesque boats sail its waters and multi-hued, wooden huts line its beaches. It has acres of beautiful countryside where colours change with the seasons. It boasts numerous historic towns and villages with pretty, pastel cottages and brightly painted landmarks.
Colours of Suffolk takes the reader on a photographic journey throughout this fine county. It has been created by photographer Mark Staples, who has travelled the length and breadth of Suffolk from his home in Bury St Edmunds to capture over 140 vibrant images depicting scenic coastal views, idyllic country landscapes, historic landmarks and quaint village cottages and churches.
Mark tends to favour bold colours and these have become a trademark of his work. There is no shortage of colourful scenes to photograph in Suffolk: Colours of Suffolk bears witness to this. Mark’s images have been widely published in regional and national magazines, on postcards, in calendars, in travel guides and tourist brochures both here and abroad. In this superb collection of photographs, Mark brings together some of his favourite Suffolk views, which makes Colours of Suffolk a beautiful keepsake for visitors to the county and locals alike.
