Orford Ness – Temporal

Whilst exploring local salt marshes of the Alde /Ore estuary, I visited Suffolk’s largest area of salt marsh on Orford Ness.  I became distracted from my marsh photography as I noticed the extensive coastal erosion, since my last visit to the Ness in 2015. (Please see my Orfordness Lighthouse video on Youtube).

I contemplated this evidence of climate change alongside the Ness’s remnants of nuclear warfare. Radio active isotopes are another key geological identifier of our anthropogenic age. My images from this visit were created to capture an era of threat and loss.
