Gilly Hopson - Exhibtion on the Barfleur

6 Feb 2018

Thrilled to have been invited to take part in the first exhibition to be staged on board Brittany Ferries’ beautiful ship “Barfleur” which sails regularly from Poole to Cherbourg.

Currently exhibiting my work in the Cygnet Gallery, Swans Yard, Shaftesbury, the first I heard of the exhibition was an email from the Arts Development Company in Dorchester which was circulated to all the artists in the gallery inviting us to submit work. All images had to be of the Dorset area, so I sent in a selection of work and was delighted when they chose my image entitled “We are Sailing”………..one of fifteen chosen from a hundred entered! This particular picture was taken on the Jurassic Coast very close to Old Harry Rocks. It was a very cold, but bright day and the colour of the sea was an amazing shade of azure blue. It was also extremely windy, which made focusing rather difficult as my eyes were streaming from the cold and the tripod seemed to have a life of its’ own, threatening to take off over the edge of the cliff with me attached! Despite the conditions however, I managed to capture this long exposure ICM image of a distant lone sailing boat, which is proving to be one of my most popular images having also been published in Outdoor Photography magazine in 2016.
