West of Bodmin Moor, Cornwall's bed rock is quite spectacular. Millions of years ago, a vast, super-heated plume of molten rock thrust up through the sedimental surface crust and fired it into igneous rocks laced with veins of quartz. For miners, these veins guided them to locating the valuable elements and metals drawn up from the depths of the earth.
For me, the quartz creates wonderful detail and lead-in lines amongst the strata of the shining mica-rich slate. My images often feature such detail as it so richly evocative. Add some lichen and fauna and the foreground becomes a place where the gaze can linger before it rises to the sea and sky beyond.
