The sense of place in this sequence looks within the changing nature of Ten Scapes.
Ten, connected through crops, land, religion, mysticism, historically resonates through the seasons in the upland landscapes I have documented for some years:
Surrounded by agriculture, monastic plight echoes in high biodiversity – A Scape of scrub birch copse spreading between peatland mire and woodland. It contributes to the wider ecosystem through the storage of carbon, controlling flooding and sustaining rare species –
In the intervention of man to control Nature’s balance, this environment is in perpetual change.
I sought the transient beauty of the Scape, the range of feelings it evokes as I walk through, stop, turn and look.
