Toxic Beauty

Since the ban on aerial photography was lifted from Poland, photographer Kacper Kowalski has been paragliding over his homeland, capturing rural, urban landscapes. Toxic Beauty is a stunning series of photographs focusing on the unexpected splendour of the colourful stains industrial plants have on the landscape. I love the striking colours in the images, almost like they have been painted, patterns gouged into thick acrylic paint. Abstract at first glance, you are able to enjoy the initial hit of colour before the reality of what they stand for cuts in. Showing areas of Poland that are heavily fenced off and guarded, they bring to our attention the sheer scale of damage that is going on behind these forbidden walls…

The Kingham Plough

On the way back from our weekend to Anglesey we drove through the Cotswold’s and stopped at this gorgeous pub for lunch…The sun was shining and the pub was picture perfect… A definate stop off point for Sunday lunch if you are heading this way. Food highly recommended.

 The Kingham Plough

Secret beach…

On the Furthest side of Anglesey Island, 800m down a long dirt unmarked loop of track, where 2 footpaths are marked but over grown…Take the left hand footpath over the metal kissing gate and down across the heath land full of heather. Over the farm gate and down and round the bends follow the path to the end…Over another metal gate and down through the gorse and bramble archway tunnel to the edge of the cliff…A few more brambles and some scrambling over fallen walls and you arrive….at the calmest, erie cove of beach. Not a sound. Porth Wen.

View into the next bay...
