Moments From A Celtic Cove

I used to live almost as close to this place as is possible. It was fickle, the banks were rarely any good, there were loads of closeouts, but every now and then there would be a bomb in the middle of winter that would through something worth shooting. It was always dark, and these shots reflect that. It was always a place of great pollution, pretty much always knew you were going to get ill here, ad still a spot which is prone to storm drain overflow.

Early days, still on film some 15 years ago. It was always shot on black and white those days, the cove never got much light anyway, and on a stormy day virtually zero. The damp, rain and water cascading down rocks made changing a roll of film a mission. Above Ian Battrick and John Eldridge prepare to paddle out. The two shots below are of Ian Battrick from this day.
