When the tide recedes on Gochang Beach on the west coast of South Korea, access can be gained to the many fishing sticks in the mudflats. Using a long exposure to smooth out the water and put movement in the sky, striking abstract images can be created which provide a feeling of zen-like calm and magical quality. What struck me about the encounter I had with these sticks was the perspective the lines created and the strength of the leading poles. I also sensed the reflections that would be created with the long exposure and the still water would help exaggerate the perspective. With using film, unlike digital, you have to wait for the results - needless to say I was delighted with the final print!
