Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
I really wish anyone who might look at my blog the very best Christmas this year and hope that your hopes and dreams for 2014 might come true. These two images are of Bideford, North Devon, where I am based. I shall endeavour to post you some interesting and inspiring posts this coming year so please check back occasionally to see what I'm up to.
If you need instruction on how to use your camera better or even how to make the most out of an iPhone camera, PhotoShop, Photographing Artwork, Painting with Light etc please take a look at my Photographic Workshops at this link
My current work is based around caves and rock formations at the edge of the land. Cave is a loose term as some of the places I’ve photographed are very shallow; others could be described as tunnels with openings at both ends. Some are natural and result from the massive erosion inflicted on the north Devon and Cornish coastline and others were originally mine entrances dug deep into the cliffs. Some sit proud of high water and are only attacked by the highest tides now and others are only accessible at the lowest tides and disappear completely soon after the tide has turned.
A cave’s wet walls and barnacled ceiling warns of the huge tidal difference of up to ten metres in the Bristol Channel. Spending time in these sublime dynamic spaces, documenting the interiors of these inverted sculptures, I’m continually reminded of the awesome power of the sea and treat it with great reverence.
My work here has been inspired by the rare dynamic landscape locked between the high and low tides. This landscape is seen through the eyes of a boy, and transformed by the hand of an Artist.
