Coastline UK

Coastline UK


Photographs by Richard Cooke
Publisher: Thames & Hudson Ltd

Ref: BKS000186

The great swirls of a turquoise sea and tracts of golden sand are not those of a Mediterranean island but are, in fact, the true form of the shoreline of Britain. Mudflats, dunes and scrubland are the source of strange, exotic hues and patterns when viewed from above. Small harbours yield complex herring-bone arrangements of boats, and busy commercial ports become semi-abstract, multi-coloured assemblages.
