Dorset’s Jurassic Coast is something of a time warp; here you can travel through history and time.
In this landscape rocks and fossils detail each element of the Earth’s past; with the cliffs and shoreline providing a living texture through the layers of sedimentary rock, exposing 185 million years of history.
The Jurassic Coast is one of the most photographed locations in Dorset and I am very fortunate to live within easy reach of this World Heritage Site. The skies, the light and the elements combine to make this a fascinating location for artists and photographers.
The rocks around Kimmeridge Bay provide shapes, colours and textures as a result of years of sea activity and erosion. In late afternoon light their colours and textures are enhanced by a low sun which provides a palette of colour.
I came across these ‘inner landscapes’ when visiting Kimmeridge one afternoon. Leaving home the lighting looked promising but nearing the location, the sky became heavier and darker. Undaunted I pressed on and walked around the bay while the tide was out. I suddenly became aware of the shapes, textures and colours in the rocks, stones and dried up rock pools. When the late afternoon light burst through, it immediately enhanced the textures and colours in the shoreline and the rock formations.
The ‘inner landscape’ style of photography has since become a fascination for me and the resulting images are proving extremely popular on my website as giclee and canvas prints.
