The Severn Bore is one of Britain's few truly spectacular natural phenomena. It is a large tidal wave that, on certain days throughout the year, runs into the River Severn estuary, where the tidal range is the 2nd highest in the world.
As an elemental photographer I'm like a kid in sweet shop when the bore is in town. Capturing the Severn Bore has been extremely challenging. I have used many a craft in order to capture the heart and soul of the great wave as it snakes inland on its inland journey. Car, boat and microlight aircraft have all been tools in my quest to capture the best of this natural phenomenon.
This book is a culmination of my photographic journey to date.
