Taking photographs plays an important part in capturing  images and ideas which inspire Jill McIntosh´s work.

Shorelines and beaches can be particularly interesting  where there are distinctive rock types tumbled together,
the effect can be very dramatic and unexpected.

Clumps of seaweed wafting in the current create a beautiful flowing movement. 

Exquisite shades of turquoise softly merge together and are constantly changing in the sunlight creating an endless
variety of blue tones.

Rugged coastlines are spectacular places where the sea crashes against the land creating spectacular wave patterns.

Jill finds the Atlantic coast of both Scotland and France a huge inspiration for her work. The wild peninsula of Finistere in Brittany where rocky cliff paths allow stunning views to the turbulent water below.
