Welcome to my first Post as I launch my website David Townshend Images. I am a photographer who specialises in creating abstract and impressionist landscape, garden and architectural images. My inspiration comes from the world around me, natural and man-made. You can read more about my background on the About page.
I have a life long love of the coast – I was brought up in a coastal village in Norfolk and carried out research on shorebird ecology in the North East, so it is no surprise that I first explored impressionist photography on the Norfolk and Northumberland coasts. The image below forms part of my Coastal Impressions series, my first impressionist project.
This image was created on the beach at Wells-next-the-Sea in Norfolk, where the beach huts provide such striking colours and shapes. They are perched on stilts for fear of being buried by the blown sand.
