I have been watching water for very many years.
My colour photographs are the selective results of an on-going exploration of the ephemeral
interfaces between water, air, light, rock/sand.
Discovered details depict a revelation of the infinite modes of fractal relationships. The harmony
of the observed sea-scape mirrors the ordered chaos of its minute constituents. The random
interactions generate natural form and are the genesis of the image. The streams and shore of the
Island of Mull are the sites/sights of acts of creation -nature's and mine.
