Pegasus Seascapes

During 2011 and 2012 I made a series of photographs towards the horizon from the same point on the Pegasus Coast, just north of Christchurch, New Zealand. The idea came to me during one of my regular rides along the coastal sector of the popular Bottle Lake Forest Park mountain bike track.

I was reflecting on how dramatically the seascape changes day to day and decided to record those changes as a long term project.

Pegasus Coast Horizon

This was a great opportunity to combine photography with mountain biking.

The resultant series confirmed my observations and highlighted the dynamic colours, textures and moods of the coast.

A selection of the series, which totalled about ninety photographs, is presented at Pegasus Seascapes Gallery

Alternatively the series may be viewed as a video on Vimeo:
