Gallery Closing for a month and The West Pier, Brighton
The Gallery will be Closed 13th Jan -13th Feb 2020
Neil is off to take photographs starting on the wild Atlantic Coast of Ireland, whilst Freya and Holli are taking a well earned break. It's been a crazy busy time for us! So thank you for all of your interest and support. Long may it continue!
This means we will not be able to ship new orders now until mid February. In the meantime, here is a new picture I hope you will enjoy.
The West Pier - Brighton
The old West Pier remains in Brighton is an irresistible subject. This is a long exposure as the early morning light is just creeping into the sky.
For me this picture speaks of the futility of our dreams and ambitions when faced with the immensity of time and nature. ( I find this oddly comforting!) The West Pier always brings my mind a few lines of poetry recalled from school days..
"My name is Ozymandias, King of King;
Look on my Works, ye Mighty, and despair!"
Nothing beside remains, Round the decay
of that colossal Wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.
Happy 2020 x

Strange days, The Gallery is of course closed, and this means we are sadly unable to make or ship any website orders at the moment. Fingers crossed this won't be for too much longer...
I took this picture during a winter storm from the beach in Newhaven, East Sussex. It was wild. I was running in and out of the surf on the steep shingle beach doing my best to dodge the waves, get some pictures, and not get pulled into the ocean.
Pulpit Rock, at the Southern tip of Portland Bill, is pretty cool. It was created by quarry workers in the 1870s who took away the surrounding rock, to leave the edifice and the leaning stone standing alone to represent an open bible resting against a pulpit.
