Colour is everything – it can be seen, felt, and heard. It can scream with intensity, hum with vibration, or whisper to the point of stillness and reflection. Black Point is a magical place. As pristine as this coastline appears with its ancient basalt cliffs, close observation reveals tiny fragments of sea glass and plastic – a reminder of our human impact on the natural world.
