Wilderness coast


A race against time with the advancing tide heightened the experience of photographing this wild coast. Standing on the dark sand among the waves with the roar of the surf in my ears, there was no doubt that this must be rendered in black and white. A slow-shuttered wave provided textures that mirrored the formations in the sky.
