White and red wildflowers in grass

Fierce beauty II


Second 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.

So tender, transient yet flashes of vibrance and their sheer hardiness in the face of the ever-present coastal winds say otherwise.  These were growing right on the edge of a cliff facing out into the Atlantic Ocean where they are subjected to all weather yards from the spot where they say Saint David was born to his pagan mother Non during a thunder storm that cleaved the headland with lightning and caused the nearby spring, now a wellhead, to flow. On the same site are the remains of a megalithic stone arrangement and, though the sun was shining gloriously while I was there, I was in no doubt that the weather there can be extreme.

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, also their stillness within a frenzy of activity, in a series of painterly and subtle shots.
