The Fenland challenge
The fens consists of an agricultural landscape, the water draining channels of dykes and ditches that were carved into the flooded and marshy land allowed the farmers access to the rich soil. These drains prevent the farmed land from flooding but have brutally changed the environment over the last 200 years. The Fens are flat, desolate, with a subdued atmosphere with large skies. Trying to capture this atmosphere is my challenge.
