Sandpiper Flight

During a winter storm-surge at Bamburgh on the Northumbrian coast I watched a small flock of Purple Sandpipers dashing infront of the breaking waves. After alighting on the rocks they would be soon be pushed off by the crashing surf to wheel around again to another part of the shore. It would have seemed sensible for the birds to settle above the danger zone but I imagine the pounding sea was dislodging small marine organisms and spraying them on to the rocky shore – rich pickings for alert and agile sandpipers.

Due to popular demand the main edition of this giclée print has sold out. However, there are still a few ‘artist’s proofs’ remaining. Artist’s proofs are the test run of prints which are used to check colour before the main edition is printed. There are ten proofs that are identical in every way to the main numbered edition, with the exception that they are numbered AP/1 – AP/10. All are signed. These can be purchased by clicking on the ‘Buy now ‘ button.
