EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures the haunting beauty of coastal erosion at Kilnsea, East Riding Of Yorkshire. Standing tall against the relentless power of the sea, a First World War Gun Emplacement emerges from the sandy beach, serving as a poignant reminder of past conflicts and human resilience. Taken in 2016 by acclaimed photographer Alun Bull, this image showcases nature's ability to shape and reshape our landscapes over time. The eroded coastline serves as an ever-changing canvas where history intertwines with natural forces. The concrete structure that once stood strong now stands vulnerable, its purpose transformed from defense to becoming part of the landscape it was meant to protect. As we gaze upon this photograph, we are reminded not only of the destructive force of coastal erosion but also of humanity's capacity for adaptation and survival. It is a testament to our ability to confront challenges head-on and find new ways to thrive amidst adversity. Bull's masterful composition invites us into a world where past meets present, where remnants of war coexist with the ebb and flow of tides. This image encourages contemplation on how our actions today can shape tomorrow's landscapes and prompts us to reflect on our responsibility towards preserving both natural wonders and historical landmarks for future generations. In capturing this moment frozen in time, Alun Bull reminds us that even in decay there is beauty – an enduring reminder that life persists despite constant change.
