  11. 11. <ul><li>I remember the day now. Waking up in the tent and walking the eight kilometres out to the Totem pole. I remember the rope traverse onto the ‘Pole’ itself and rappelling down it. There, I can hear the roaring of the waves like distant bombs exploding. I can still smell the seaweed, like iron tastes. We were alone. . </li></ul>
  12. 12. <ul><li>No sooner had I got to the foot of the ‘Tote’ than I was up to my waist in the sea. Soaking wet. I shouted to Celia to come on down, but to stop at the ledge, and to tie the rope off there. I remember putting my rope ascenders on and making two moves on it before swinging wildly to the left… Then nothing. I don’t remember anything else about the next fifteen minutes </li></ul>
  13. 13. <ul><li>I am now upside down and shrugging my rucksack off into the sea. Celia is shouting at me; “You’ve got to help me here if we’re going to get out of this.” I’m being held upright in slings, the grunting and laborious haul up which I’m told took three hours. I am making noises that sound nothing like me. I lost half my blood as I lay, shaking, for ten hours on that ledge, as Celia climbed out and ran the five miles for help. </li></ul>

  30. 35. Can satellite images be interpreted artistically? <ul><li>Artists have long been inspired by the World around them, from Constable’s paintings of the English Countryside, Turner’s famous paintings showing the roughness of nature, with bleak landscapes and violent storms to Lowry’s depictions of Industrial Britain. But with the advent of satellites and the imagery they capture from Space the Earth can be now be observed, artistically or otherwise, from a wider range of scales. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul>
