Flooding Tide to Chick Rock

Time it so the lowering sun meets a rising tide and the rocky plateau at the end of Pentire Point West becomes a feature strewn 'rockscape' of flooding waves and rushing, watery textures. It's not the easiest place to reach and a constant watch is kept on the sea. The tidal reach (the difference between high and low tide level) is often around 6 meters here. The time between every transition is 6 hours, 12.5 minutes. Therefore, in basic terms, during every hour of an incoming tide, the sea rises 1 meter. Therefore it's not hard to see why the shooting opportunity is limited here.

Yet I am drawn back time after time. I relish the wild outlook and detached remoteness. I love the thrill that courses through me here. I am mesmerised by the outlook and the way the sky changes with the evolution of the daylight hours.

This image is ideally suited to reproduction, either as a traditional, mounted and framed limited edition print, or as a contemporary, unframed acrylic 'glass' artwork. The drop down menu below lists both purchase options in a number of sizes.
