When you are encompassed by a coastline, your way of life is dramatically influenced by the sea and its coastal effects. You know the water is at all points of the compass. You are drawn to it daily as if the horizon were a magnet. The closer you come, the more you sense its effects. Saltwater, seaweed and sand flats are smelled before seen.  Weathered  is the natural state of being. Erosion is the natural course of events. The tides tie  you to the cycles of the moon. The winds tie you to the rhythm of the waves. Life and love tie you to the magic of the place. It is the magic of the place that inspires me to photograph. excerpt from Coastal Effects by Jon Vaughan
