It was interesting to note the amount of people who were collecting things, such as shells and pebbles, perhaps for some artistic practice.
Beaches are very much a popular destination even in February.
There were so many people on this small area of beach walking dogs, throwing pebbles into the sea and collecting shells and other objects that I decided this corner of the beach would be a good place to work.
Inspired by the work of Andy Goldsworthy I started to build a cone like structure from the fallen slate.
This structure took approx five hours to build and was a good exercise in careful selection of the slate pieces as I started to build up the structure, also a valuable lesson in developing patience!
