The Sea

For anyone who knows me by now you will have noticed that I love getting creative with almost anything that can produce an image from scanners to pin hole, film to digital. I also love to spend as much time as possible at a beach over the weekend.

One weekend while sitting on a beach watching molly swim and the waves roll in, I was looking a the pebbles and the colours that the water created on them. I have tried many times to bring some home but by the time they are dry the colours have faded so much you wonder why you bothers with them.

Well an idea came to me, this being to put them in water and freeze them then using a flash gun on the other side of the block of Ice to back light the ice and pebbles see if I could record the colours for good.

I am very happy with the result and think these images make for a wonderful Windows or Ipad backdrop, have a go! you could freeze almost anything and as its spring why not flower or leafs etc…
