Shapes, lines, curves, contrasts. Yes I like to find them in architecture and the man-made world but nature provides more and the challenge is to seek out those views and angles and shapes at each location.
This small quiet beach on the Slea Head drive in Kerry was featured in the film Ryan’s Daughter. An opportunity to explore the texture of sand, rock and sky.
It was a dull, stormy day at this stop on the Haast highway in New Zealand in 2012 but the trees and lighting fascinated me.
Back in England and another of my favourite beaches. Best when the tide is out and revealing smooth wet reflective sands.
Bedruthan Steps faces west into the Atlantic Ocean and it reminds me of the Oregon coast, west facing into the Pacific. This shot was taken on a poor quality camera at dusk back in 2000 at Cannon Beach but shows the dramatic beauty of the place. The Oregon coast is a place to re-visit with a better camera…
Two final images on east facing coasts. Norfolk and Florida. The lighting always has a quite different but equally wonderful quality on eastern coastlines, typically clear and bright and clean.
