Posted by david purdie on

This isn't really a gallery picture, but i liked it so much I thought it deserved a place on the website slideshow.  Having said that do let me know if you want a limited edition print of this -  it could be done.   Shot last week at about 1AM from my kitchen back door in tenterden. I post pictures like this now and then on instgram @purdiegallery David

black and white on the beach at Pett Level

  I often find on hot summer days the colour in photos can become very dull and unexciting. At the worst a picture can be cut in half coulour-wise, the bottom half green the top half blue. Especially if there are no clouds. On these occasions I often try converting them to black and white. These two were shot while doing a private workshop day for a couple from London. We had beatiful weather and got these shots near the cliffs at pett level. David Purdie July 2018
