Coast

Portraits of boats

This weeks posts have a very heavy Maritime theme and I am going to continue that today (must be the sunny weather).  I am fascinated by the sea and the surrounding coastal landscape, especially inspired by interactions between humans and the deep, churning, waters.One manifestation of this fascination is boats.  When ever I am at the coast I come away with a good number of images containing boats.  It doesn't matter what size or shape, I photograph them.  A lot of them are quite similar I have to say, but they do make for some nice images.  They are also useful devices to add foreground interest to a scene.

 

This one was interesting as it was beached amongst the reeds. The sun just appeared from behind the clouds, boosting the contrast within the scene.

 

Until next time.

Al Palmer - Coastal

From my blog you can probably tell that I am quite into fashion photography, but I do appreciate good photography of all kinds. Al Palmer is a good friend of mine and his work differs considerably from my own and although not all to my tastes his work is very good. The coastal project has inspired me to start working on some projects of my own. In these images I really like the tranquil yet brooding nature of the images which instantly screams England, but yet could really be anywhere. Anyway enjoy the images and hopefully we will see more from this project in future.

Thanks for reading.
