The rocks at Kimmeridge Bay were once the floor of a deep, tropical sea rich in pre-historic life. They formed in the Jurassic period, 155 million years ago.
Hi, my name is Antonio Gouveia I was born in Madeira, Portugal, moved in my early twenties to Jersey Channel Islands and currently I live in Portsmouth, England. Whenever it's possible, I like to discover the beauties the world has to offer, travelling near or as far as I can, capturing those special moments... always accompanied by my camera and music. I was always interested to all types of art in their endless variations, subjects and forms. Photography has been part of my life since I can remember, taking snap shots here and there until the day I started seeing it in a completely different way, a new and magical world, full of possibilities, from there I wanted to create images according to my vision. For myself photography is an art form involving different stages of creation and being aware, not only of the surrounding environment but also my subconscious, thoughts, feelings and dreams. Listening to music when processing my images is the best way to express that part of myself as I feel like a composer with the process... "absorbing the soul of the landscape, leave it in the Images what my own soul brings to this communion."
