This temporary beach arrangement was created at South Beach,near Whitehaven in West Cumbria in August 2023.This beach location always has interesting visits from far flung places and here I made use of a washed up fishing boat container that had drifted over from Quimper in North France. I sat the container on the remains of a shopping trolley which was dumped on the beach from a nearby supermarket. I then stacked up the container with a carefully constructed pyramid of pebbles which tested the structure to its limits.Although Quimper is a low lying area I literally made the pebble moiund to represent a mountain hence the title Quimper Massif !The structure was massively overweight and succumbed to the waves when the next high tide came in.
