About the Image:
I recently went down to a Dunluce, I wanted to create a portrait image to go with my other portrait seascapes. When you are in this location you can't help to think of the history of the castle. Can you imagine in the 1600s people seeing this from the sea on there way around the coast, the castle under siege, battles where you can hear the sound of sea and clash of iron? Well, this is what was going through my mind as I sat underneath it for 5hrs creating this image. It was strong spring sunset, the tide was strong and the waves were crashing in and I wanted to capture the texture of the sea highlighted by the overcast horizon of sunset and the have the views eye lead into the setting sun and then look around and experience the epic castle sitting there till the stars came out I felt a sense of aww home on my way home.
'Coordinates°’ is an epic collection of vistas set around the North Coast all images are titled with the precise longitude and latitude from where it was taken. If you type the coordinate number into google you will get directions which will allow you to go and see the location for yourself. My background is as a printmaker so instead of using one static shot of an image or limiting myself to one exposure, I use multiple images taken over sometimes 5hrs of the same scene and combine these images to create the magical compositions you see today.
People respond to the magical and creative nature of this work, the stars, the sea, the use of colour and composition.
