  1. What an amazing series, such fantastic colours and textures. And you are so disciplined to stick with it! (So speaks a flipperty gibbet who can’t stay with one thing for more than a few days!! Lol)

  2. Thank you, Liz. The images are a catalogue of what I saw in just a couple of hours on the beach, and will eventually demonstrate the character of three distinct rock zones at Polurrian Cove. It has an interesting geology. Posting just one image a day for the time being allows viewers to appreciate the details of the differences and contrasts while releasing the time for me to undertake a number of other interesting projects.

  3. Thank you, Claudia. I like people to see the context in which the close-up photos were taken. This scene was captured in the only moment that the sun appeared for a few seconds that day.
