Through all of time our local landscapes have constantly been changing... and continue to change, annually, daily. David Hawke has had opportunity to be out of doors most of his life, and with camera in hand has recorded many facets of our natural world including vistas both dynamic and subtle.

 A photograph is a recording of 1/250th of one second of the entire time passage; these images journal a moment in a place within a landscape.

These 26 images are also captured memories of David's escapes where, for a moment, the landscape became his entire world.
