Craster is in my opinion one of the most picturesque harbours in England. I have taken many photographs of rope over the years but have never worked out why! Maybe it has something to do with ageing, that being by the sea, in and out of salt water gives them a certain unique look? Whatever the reason behind this close up, I know that the texture of the rope looks great in black and white. I didn’t go to Craster with a rope photograph in mind, but as soon as the sunlight hit this pile of old ropes I knew I had to try to capture a photograph of it.
