This is the first in a series of wild flower photographs taken on the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path on a glorious spring day – size 40 x 26cm, availabe as a Giclée print on velvet soft Hahnemühle paper.
These beautiful flowers look so fragile and yet they were growing on the edge of a cliff facing out into the Atlantic Ocean where they are subjected to all weather. More appropriate still, to my perspective, was that they were growing in thick carpets just a few yards from a place marked as the spot where the mother of Saint David, a pagan icon of the sacred feminine, is said to have lived out her own resilient existence. On the same site are the remains of a megalithic stone arrangement and the springhead that is said to have first appeared when David was born during a fierce storm.
As a symbol of hardy femininity, the kind of resilience that keeps going in even the harshest of circumstances, these flowers seemed to speak volumes and I wanted to capture their fierce beauty in a series of painterly and subtle shots.
