From the sea at San Pedro

San Pedro from the sea

San Pedro from the sea

On most of our hot and sunny days during July and August in Andalucia the light is too hazy and white to create good photos. Today has been hot and sunny and we walked to San Pedro to enjoy a relatively uncrowded beach. The light was here was quite good but I have taken so many photos of the beach, cove and valley that I needed to look for a different perspective. I swam out into the warm Mediterranean with my small Sony waterproof compact camera. I took a photo looking back at the beach and another out to sea. Here is the one looking back.

Looking out to sea

This photo is looking out to sea. I like the way the silhouette of the mast and the floating seagrass in the foreground aid the composition.

About Margaret Merry

I grew up in Falmouth, Cornwall, England where, after leaving Falmouth High School, I spent a year at Falmouth School of Art. Then followed three years at Hornsey College of Art in London where I obtained a Diploma in Art and Design. I then spent a post-graduate year at the West of England College of Art in Bristol where I gained an Art Teacher?s Diploma and a Certificate in Education of the University of Bristol. I lived and worked in Truro for over 30 years and became one of Cornwall's most popular artists. My paintings have been exhibited in New York, Tokyo, Paris and London and have been bought by collectors from all over the world. I have published 4 books which became local bestsellers - 'The Natural History of a Westcountry City', 'Margaret Merry's Cornish Garden Sketchbook', 'Sea & Sail' and 'Tidal Reaches'. In 2002 I moved to Spain and now live in the little coastal village of Las Negras in the heart of the Parque Natural de Cabo de Gata. I now get my inspiration from the dramatic scenery of Andalucia and its old cities, towns and villages which I usually capture in watercolour. I also enjoy figurative art, particularly nudes and dancers. For these paintings I use artists' soft pastels. I have written and illustrated 3 children's books - The Wise Old Boar, The Lonely Digger and The Adventure of Princess The Pony - which have been published in the USA.
