The allure of coastal regions is difficult for the photographer to resist. The restlessness of the ocean and ever changing weather provides a perfect canvas to create images that resonate with the viewer. From calm, cobalt days to those filled with the threat of storms, there is never a reason not to turn a lens toward the sea. Living in land-locked Derbyshire, the nearest coast is 100 miles away, so it is always a bit of an event when we decide to go and capture some coastal shots. Many of our seascapes are taken when holidaying abroad as this offers some of our best opportunities and great memories. From the Northumbrian to the West African coasts, here is a mixed bag of our favourites.
