  Stereograpic projection 360 degrees of the rocks around Maltot

The Roundscape here is of the rock pools and seascape of Anse du Hommet near Maltot in Normandy. The pink sand is noticeable on blue late afternoons and evenings. The sand contains a good amount of rose granite the same granite used in pink gravestones. A deep blue sky brings the pink out and makes for a pleasing vibration. Foot Fishing (pêche à pied) for Mussels, prawns, oysters and winkles is popular here but the season hasn't really started yet.

Stereograpic projection 360 degrees M.V. Barfleur

The Roundscape here is of the MV Barfleur in the middle of the channel. The top rectangle has a face in it and the bottom of the globe has two little legs it reminded me a bit of a corn dolly or a little shaman on a stick.

I sent a couple of regular photographs to Brittany Ferries which they duly published however the round scapes provoked the following response.


It is a different perspective because it's impossible for us to see it. If you turn your head from left to right what can you actually see? Well, you see the start of the turn and the end of the turn only, because the middle of it will have not have been registered. Try it!
These roundcapes represent what you could see if you turned 360 degrees and could remember all you had seen.

Price includes Frame

 Round Scapes are framed original digital photographs of landscapes. Photographing panoramic landscapes allows me to manipulate these images into stereographic projections sometimes known as little planets.

The view you end up with is a 360 degree landscape manipulated into a globe.

The size of the Round Scape print and frame together is 18 x 22cm with fittings allowing for wall mounting or free standing on a shelf or desk. Price £12.99
Larger versions 23cm x 28cm (Framed) are also available for £17.99
