Kuanor Photography Perspectives

Your Bio

It seems that the more people we have on this world, the fewer natural things survive. Wild and free life, untouched natural beauty, the grace of old things - they are all disappearing. The images here are an odyssey of wonder, of perspectives captured before they are gone.

Kuanor (Gaelic: Ocean's Treasure) - is a collection of coastal and mountain landscapes, old castles and standing stones. This world can be beautiful - but it is shrinking and it is dying. Humans have assumed they own it, that every thing upon this world belongs to them, and especially if it be log or grass or ore or drop of oil or mineral.

Surely we are just temporary passersby and the world belongs to no-one? Surely we have a responsibility to put back what we take, to use as little as possible, to place our footprints wisely, and to acknowledge that untouched wilderness has a right to exist in plentitude, without any touch of human hand?

UPDATE (December 2013): Recent landscapes from the trip up through BC to Prince Rupert and return by way of the ferry to Vancouver Island. Some very atmospheric shots taken between torrential downpours, highlighting areas threatened by pipelines, and the attendant oil and gas exploitation.

UPDATE (January 2014): Tropical trip and a new beginning.

More to come soon; a bit backlogged at present. .
