I have just returned from a working holiday in Staithes and the North East coast of England to gather resource material for a commission and future paintings. I had the most amazing weather and got some fabulous shots.
Leica compact f.8 raw, straight from the camera.

My love of the sea stems from my childhood. I was born in Hartlepool on the North East coast and visited the little fishing village of Staithes often, as I still do today. The fishing cobles to be found on the North East coast serve as my models.

    Your little Leica serves you well…helping you highlight the fine texture of the sand, holding the clarity between grass and grass shadow…excellent work. I love the calm light.

  • Thank you so much for this lovely comment. I am extremely pleased with my little Leica and it means I always have a camera to hand to capture such scenes.
