The locations in the exhibition

Most photographs are of the Isles of Scilly, but the map below shows their position along with the other places shown

The Outer Hebrides contain some of the oldest rocks in the world and have some famously rugged landscapes. But Iíve mainly photographed the beaches and the Ďmachairí Ė dunes covered in peat that makes for gentle grassy meadows Ė that lie along the western coasts. The island of Barra features here.

The mountainous island of Rùm lying 15 miles off the mainland is an impressive site from most directions. The images here are from a six miles stretch of the mainland coast near Arisaig, so have different foregrounds, but share a similar profile.

Connemara is a mountainous region in the far west of Ireland. It has a rich variety of landscapes. The one photograph here is of an area similar to the Outer Hebrides Ė a beach backed by dunes

West Cornwall is a lot easier to get to than the other areas here Ė as a result itís lot busier, but can still be quiet a lot of the time. Itís famous for its cliffs and tin mines but also has long sandy beaches many of which are great for surfing with large Atlantic rolling waves.

The Isles of Scilly are 30 miles beyond the end of Cornwall and are tiny. Lots of maps donít bother to show them at all. They are remains of granite outcrops beyond Bodmin Moor and the Landís End peninsula. The sands are of white shell, and the islands range from grassy and smooth in the East to jagged and dangerous in the West.
