A walk on the dunes

East Head is a spit of sand and shingle in Chichester harbour.  Because of its composition and location bordering the open sea, the shape and position of the spit have been modified with the passage of time.  The dunes are particularly enjoyed by walkers and wildlife enthusiasts.

The returning wise men?

I suppose they could be.  There are certainly three of them  –  and they’re empty handed, so possibly they’ve delivered their gifts.  And they’re setting off into the desert as if they’re from afar.

But just one moment.  I’m not sure they’re all men, and their clothes look remarkably modern.  You’d think they would at least each have a camel or a donkey and, perhaps, would be on speaking terms!  It seems there is also a cameraman with them.  Now that’s a surprise!

The truth is the photo was taken about four years ago on the dunes of Gran Canaria in the Canary Islands.  The positioning of the walkers was fortuitous and was not contrived.

More Dunes

My fascination with the dunes caused me to return on numerous occasions.  I became absorbed with the character of the landscape and decided to be a little more adventurous in my interpretations of the scene.

I also created a black and white image from the third of the group above.

Camber Dunes

The long sandy beach of Camber Sands is bordered on the landward side by picturesque sand dunes.  The dunes are covered with marram grass that has a deep root system to hold the grass in place.  Traditional chestnut fences help sand build up and check coastal erosion.

Introducing the Dune Grass photos

Dune grasses have provided the subject for a number of my photographs.  I enjoy their spiky character and fine lines which contrast with the flexible flowering grasses found in a meadow.

Dune grasses frequently form distinctive, natural patterns that can be lost to the casual viewer.  To draw attention to the patterns, in most cases I have removed the background or used a neutral or contrasting colour (as in Dune Grasses).

Removing the background provides an opportunity to create abstract minimalist compositions of fine lines within a defined space.

I hope you enjoy them.
