Zdanowicz said: ‘Ever since I purchased my first camera in July 2013 I have been hooked on photographing the amazing Yorkshire Landscape.
‘My love for landscape photography has really helped me see what an amazing county I live in. Ssome of the places I would have never known existed if not for exploring with my camera.
‘The images in this book are my collection of over 120 pictures taken over the last couple of years. I have explored cities, coastal lines and the vast Yorkshire countryside. Each picture represents a unique moment captured from each seasonal scene.
Zdanowicz revealed that his main inspiration for this book was his online following, after many asked him to release one. Pictured: Ribblehead Viaduct
For its proud inhabitants, long-term visitors and even casual tourists, this book is a must according to Zdanowicz. Pictured: Malham

‘Each part of Yorkshire is unique in its own way. There has been something special about each location. It is full of history and tradition. I can see why Yorkshire has been named one of the must visit places in the world.
‘My main inspiration for this book has been my online following. I have been asked many times over the last two years whether I had a book and after my friend Imran suggested I contacted a publisher to try and get my work released. Amberley Publishing really liked my work and thought it would make a great book. I was over the moon.’
The book is set to be released on April 15 and can be pre-ordered from various places including Zdanowicz’s website, Amazon, Amberley Publishing, Waterstones and many other retailers, for £15.99.
