Each one is unique and such a work of art in itself. I love the variety of colours in the top image. Jessica, you really know how to reveal the beauty of pebbles with your photographs.
Sometimes you have to suffer for your art. It was cold and raining when I took those pictures. I really wanted to capture that sheen and the depth of colour but I had to keep on wiping raindrops away from the camera lens – one day I’m going to accidentally scratch the glass.
Lovely pebbles, you will never run out of raw material.
True. I always find interesting pebbles to photograph. Just wish I knew more about geology and petrology.
Your biggest fan – John Beaumont, 5, geologist in training – thinks these are your best yet! Wonderful pictures, Jessica. John can’t wait to visit UK and Rhossili – which is OK by Dad because I love it down there around the Gower Peninsula. John’s Nana lives in Cheltenham, where I grew up, so we’re not too far away when we do get there from New York!
Best from us both,
So glad that John likes the latest pebble photographs. I was actually in Gower just this last weekend. The weather was glorious but there were not so many pebbles around – the sand there shifts a lot and it is currently pushed high up the beach and covering most of the pebbles. The sand depth is up to a metre higher in some places compared with what it was a couple of months ago on Rhossili and Whiteford beaches. Don’t worry though, one strong high tide and the sand is likely to be washed away again to reveal the pebbles ….and I stil have hundreds of pebble and rock photographs from Gower, the Jurassic Coast, and further afield, that I can post on the blog for John.
Is John building his own collection of pebbles and rocks? I collect a few beach stones. I would pick up more but it is against the law to take pebbles from some of the beaches……and even if I could take them, I’m not certain I could carry them all back home – they are so heavy. So, although I often feel that I would like to take almost the whole beach home, I have to content myself with photographs!
