Earth Nature


This is a series of photographs I took of a bunter sandstone outcrop near my local river bank. The diversity of life forms which sprang from the cracks and fissures were amazing, and I say ‘were’ for it has all been covered over due to excavation works to help support the canal above. Essential engineering works, I realise, to stop it collapsing, but I am glad I took these images before to remind me what beauty is in the earth and nature along this stretch of the river.

    1. Thank you 🙂 The canal above had been drained a couple of times in the past after the side had given way, so it needed extra shoring to prevent it from happening again. Life has returned there, but the sandstone is buried now, so it won’t be the same species.
