An eagle eye view over the Botany Bay chalk stacks on the Broadstars/Margate border.

"Summer Glow" - Broadstairs
Botany Bay in Broadstairs - taken on a warm summer evening after a clearing storm. A secluded beach with golden sand and two chalk stacks the bay obtained its name after captured smugglers were deported to Botany Bay in Australia. Botany Bay has recently been used as a backdrop to a BBC drama series and the Emeli Sandé music video "Hurts".
Hung & printed on Kodak Metallic paper and mounted onto acrylic plexiglass - 50x75cm. 1 of 50 limited edition,
"STARGAZER" - BOTANY BAY, BROADSTAIRS
A clear and freezing winter night with no moon meant the stars over the famous chalk stack at Botany Bay in Broadstairs were shining at the their brightest.
To get this shot I used a long exposure in order to bring best of the star lights and fired off 3 x shots with a portable studio strobe light to light up the cliffs.
"Stargazer" is printed onto a special metallic paper and mounted onto a crystal clear piece of acrylic plexiglass to really bring out the luminosity in the stars.
Limited Edition 1 of 50.
"Gotham nights" - New York City
"Nights over Gotham" - a composite of 5 x different images all taken at 20 minute intervals to capture the best of New York City as it falls from twilight into night time. I visited NYC in 2016 to get a shot of the Manhattan Skyline during sunset. I waited 5 x days for a clear evening then when the time came I went to the top of the Rockafellar Centre and got the shots with the Empire State Building in full view.
Limited Edition - 1 of 5. 60x90cm Metallic on Acrylic.
"Pink Summer Sky" - Margate
Taken at low tide on a warm summer evening this image exemplifies Margate’s beauty at sunset. The tide pools reflect the strong pinks from overlooking clouds whilst the sand ripples add foreground texture to this dramatic scene. This is the classic colourful view of Margate and fitting in with this theme we have white mounted this print in a timeless black frame.
50x75cm Fuji archive print/white mount/wooden black frame.
