Rush

 Taken on a blustry day, this plane was playing with the clouds, bursting through them creating lines like drawings and contrails like watercolour. A true sense of freedom. A rush of speed and excitement.  This print is available as a Limited edition on Somerset paper.

The sunbathing moon

  This photograph was taken while flying over the South China sea on my way back from the Antipodes. When I see the moon during the day I know it is because the sun is illuminating it,of course it always is. But there is something special about seeing the moon during the day. It is…

Sky walking

Sky walking The beach had small castles on it today, made by lugworms burrowing their way to their hiding places away from birds and fishermen. It was like a mirror, a thin layer of water covered the sand reflecting the slow drifting clouds and blue sky above. It was hard to know which was beach…
