The chalk Downs running from Salisbury Plain through to the South Downs are my subject.


I wanted to capture their stark escarpments and summit plateaux, topped by dramatic skies.


I have sometimes drawn-out the Down’s contours and textures with sun-spots and farm tracks. In others, I have drawn-out the rhythm created by multiple combes, trees or clouds.


The vista of wide Downs, I felt, was better communicated by a panorama aspect, helped by a moodier tonality.


The solitude on the Downs engendered very different emotions.


I hope the drama in a few images creates a sense of peace or trepidation, as they did for me.
