The Jersey news was full of fanciful stories of a massive Spring tide.

I decided to create an image that was a little different from the norm… once again using myself as an element of the image and taking further steps into compositing.

I chose to do this shot in quite a busy area of the beach so it was also a bit of a test of ‘bottle’ to see whether I would follow the idea through… I feel that overcoming small fears like this is essential to growing as an artist and testing your limits… yes the people who saw me doing this probably thought I was a bit crazy… but the resulting image was worth it to me.
