Entering the Black and White Spider Awards again

Having had some previous successes with the Black and White Spider Awards, I've entered some more photos this year.

The Impotence of a Broken Groyne

The groynes along the Jurassic coast around Lyme Regis are being left to fall into disrepair and decay, allowing the debris from cliff collapses to be washed away and so leading to further cliff erosion. This is a good thing for fossil hunters!

I was drawn to the lovely textures in the wood, enhanced by years of scouring and burning by the salty sea. And what's more, the grain formed lovely wave-like undulations in the wood, echoing and mirroring the sculpted sandy mud and the sea itself.

Oh, and I hope you groaned at the pun in its title!

Last Surf of The Day

This is the original black and white version of my better-known colour one. It was taken at the close of day on a photowalk with a good friend at Bantham Beach in Devon.

Wouldn't it be great if the guys in the photo got in touch?! Taken 24th April 2011 in case you think it might be you.

Tousled Mane of a Dartmoor Pony

This is one of my personal favourites. These enduring, graceful ponies have been on Dartmoor maybe since the last ice age, perhaps longer. The way they move, their look and their stoic attitude to the visitors to Dartmoor makes them feel both close and distant at the same time; wild but approachable, common but regal.

Here it is on a stretch-frame canvas, available at my Zazzle store. Click to see and buy. Also available on a range of other products.
