Petit Port Bay on Guernsey's south coast on a winter's Day
This small bay on the south-west corner of Guernsey's coast is a bay I visit often to collect marine litter.
Westerly and south-westerly winds bring large amounts of plastic litter onto the upper shore of this bay especially during the winter months. During the quieter summer months much less litter arrives on the shore.
When the tide falls, a large expanse of fine sand is revealed. This is a very popular bay for surfing, but surfers have to swim out beyond the rocks to catch the large rollers that come in on stormy days from the south and west.
Sealord photography's biodiversity images began with a focus on international commercial seafood species and the marine life of the Bailiwick of Guernsey, Great Britain.
Sealord photography has a growing collection of digital images covering climate change, the environment and sustainability issues.
Sealord photography also covers the Guernsey community and particularly the fund raising activities of Guernsey charities as part of the island's social sustainability.
The fish, shellfish and marine life images would not be possible if it were not for the generosity of commercial and recreational fishermen in Guernsey, and seafood suppliers at various trade shows in the USA, and wholesalers at Fulton Fish Market in New York City.
Many marine biologists have helped identify or confirm the identity of marine species photographed. These people have been mentioned when possible.
