It all started when...

I moved to a remote corner of the Isle of Wight after a visit in the Summer of 2008. My sense of place here is strong. Over the past eight years I have become intimate with the area around Luccombe Chine - the Landslip Woods, Nansen Hill, Luccombe Bay, St Boniface Down, Luccombe and Ventnor Downs. Exploring every square inch and photographing a myriad of trees, paths, glades, groves and skies. Finding small secret wooded spaces - trapped between farmers fields, or made inaccessible by ancient landslips. During this time I have regularly updated my journal at http://ethereal.photography
