Take a fresh look at a cutting of some apple peel, and at a completely different scale, it becomes part of a hillside; or perhaps a wintry panorama can become the crest of a wave. The strength of colour and detail in printed magazine photographs is a great resource for responding to the rich natural design in a landscape.

Giles finds the beautiful hills and valleys close to home in the Peak District especially inspiring; also the wonderful coastline of Wales.
