My ‘Streamscapes’ – images of water and light – originate in and around the River Dove in the Peak District National Park and although created in camera, they are sometimes mistaken for paintings. Many of these “Streamscapes” are drawn from two tributaries. Individually and collectively they show the influence of geology, the passing of the seasons, the character of the day, the legacy of rain and the energy of the water. With a slow shutter, the surface of the water softens. Light shows as abstract scribbles and paint-like splashes. Form, features, colour and texture are all part of the images, but they are first and foremost about the light on the water, the way that this combines with its movement, and the emotions that this invokes. The images have local relevance but also a broad appeal given their intrinsic beauty and the importance of water to us all.
