Caught by the River

Survey East

23rd January 2013


Photos of the Blackwater estuary, Essex, taken by Ian Cooper:

The photos are mainly taken in the early morning whilst walking the dogs. They are predominantly from a short stretch of the Blackwater.


I started taking the photos (on a iPhone 4) in April 2012 to record our surroundings as we started working on new Ultramarine material. I will continue after the album is finished (in a few months) as the estuary is always changing and I’ve not yet managed to catch the barn owl that scours the inside of the sea wall at twilight.

Ultramarine release their new record, This Time Last Year, later this year.
