Like a lot of pho­tog­ra­phers, Jack Hop­kins is moved by the place that he grew up in. “I take many of my pho­tographs on the coast­line of Corn­wall, and have al­ways been in­spired by what it has to of­fer,” he says.

His calm­ing im­age ‘Pink Sands’ just shows that there are al­ways new ways of look­ing at lo­ca­tions that are fa­mil­iar to you. It was taken from the air us­ing a drone on the beaches of Hayle.

“I feel this pho­to­graph truly rep­re­sents the Cor­nish lifestyle,” says Jack. “The fact that the com­po­si­tion only has one surfer in it shows the con­trast be­tween Corn­wall’s packed beaches in the sum­mer and the quiet and peace us lo­cals get to en­joy dur­ing the win­ter months.” www.jackh­photo.co.uk www.dig­i­tal­cam­er­a­world.com
