In recent years Crantock Bay has undergone a significant change. Back in the storms of 2014, a huge amount of sand was washed in. In just a few tidal phases, it overran the large gabions and rocks that were placed to make the river run along the eastern headland, to create a wide, natural meander that curved across the beach.
At low tide, the meander creates wonderful textures and patterns in the sand as the river flows to the sea. In this serene image, I wanted to capture the mood of a balmy summer's sundown as the last vestiges of light catch the rippled sands and the gentle flow of the water. My aim was to reflect the quiet, unspoilt peacefulness and present a relaxing, calming image that transports the viewer to a special restfulness.
This photograph would ideally suit reproduction as an unframed, contemporary artwork. A high resolution print directly mounted under 2mm acrylic glass would accentuate the highlights and details. A large format would create powerfully engagement to make a feature of a white wall. You can see this 'Vista' purchase option by clicking the drop down menu below.
Alternatively, an ornate, gold moulded frame holding a smaller (A4/A3) fine art print would look good in a quiet study or amongst a rich bedroom decor.
