Drone photographer Vincent Howcutt spent the coronavirus lockdown period capturing these stunning images of the Devon coastline. Here, he explains the background to the project

“My This Wild Project started as a means to document the places I saw whilst walking the Devon coastline during the lockdown period, providing a visual narrative of my time on the coast during turbulent times.

“Every day I could see new perspectives and depths in the sea. The images I have taken are a unique snapshot of this period without any human interaction in the shots or pollution in the channel.

“You can evidently see the change. Colours popping, seabirds fishing in abundance, seals swimming, adders waking up after their winter slumber. It has been a real pleasure to see the land and coast as I have never seen it before. It felt like a remote paradise. The seas have been thriving and nature has been going about its wild way during this very tough time. Life found a way.”
