The Perimeter is a labour of love: it’s taken 454 days of walking, hundreds of hours of planning and thousands of hours of editing. If you have the means, I’d appreciate your support by buying a print or contributing so I can continue to share the project with you.

    Love the details in the rocks, sandstone I think,in the first photos.Indeed a great mystery as to why such things should appear beautiful through the lense of consciousness, and is it only humans who see beauty in natural things?I was reading about monkey’s seen gazing at a sunset but what’s going on in their minds impossible to know?How would a dog see the rings of Saturn 🪐?

Whether you have comments on the photos, some knowledge or a personal story on this area you’d like to share, or you’ve spotted a typo or error, I’d love to hear your thoughts.
