On first reflection these are a series of landscape panoramas depicting a busy rural scene, but these are a digital construct that record visitors to beauty spots within the Lake District National Park.

The concept of this work draws upon Marc Euge's writings on place, space, and non-space and investigates the perception of the countryside and the visitor experience.
