From the Sea to the Land


I often listen to music while I’m working on my pictures and my favourite playlist includes Sea Power’s From the Sea to the Land Beyond. My father is a keen sailor and former North Sea diver so most of my childhood was spent either on or near the sea. Although I love being by, watching or capturing it; I’m frightened by its power.  We now live a 5 minute drive from Tynemouth, North East England and two or three times a week we visit the coast: whatever the weather. I am now no stranger to the BBC’s tide tables and shipping forecast.


Capturing these images has been the most rewarding, relaxing, creative and mindful time I’ve had in many years. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have had making them.
