Mud - Sand...a notation that appears frequently on the Ordnance Survey map of the Bristol Channel. It is also a pretty succinct description of the coast here. When the sediment rich waters of Britain s longest river merge with a sea that is subjected to the second largest tidal range in the world, it is inevitable that some remarkable coastal landscapes are formed. This series of photographs explores the unusual and often maligned aesthetic of a coastline defined by miles of mudflats and salt marsh. It is a landscape rich with patterns that are constantly remoulded by tidal forces, and wet surfaces that reflect whatever drama is being played out in the skies above."
