Prof. Peter GawthropOver the years Prof. Peter Gawthrop, Honorary Senior Research Fellow of the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Centre for Systems and Control at the University of Glasgow, Scotland has been a regular visitor to Pearl Beach.

In 1999 he, together with his partner Pat, spent his sabbatical leave here in Pearl Beach working at NSW, Sydney and Newcastle Uni's on control electronics research. They swapped houses with long-time friends in Jade Place; their friend swapping jobs with his partner Pat, who is a psychologist in Glasgow.

Peter has formed strong academic links with researchers at a number of Universities in NSW and in Victoria and he is a regular visitor to Australia- for symposia, seminars and research work, always fitting in time to return to Pearl Beach, for which he has a deep affection. Pat manages to accompany him when she can. They have visited many times since.

Prof. Gawthrop at work in Pearl BeachWhile here, as a keen bushwalker Peter spends lots of time walking and re-visiting the many places he came to love during his 1999 stay, enjoying the natural beauty of the area.

Recent years have led to an interest in recording many aspects of the natural environment, here at Pearl Beach (some to assist the Pearl Beach Heritage committee work of recording places and images, which they are very pleased and grateful to have), as well as recording trips around Australia and back home in the UK, where the great beauty of Scotland and the Western Isles provides many treasures too as you can see from his website.

Being a scientist with a strong technical background Peter's experiments with the computer manipulation of natural images provide some spectacular shots from the southern rock ledge and in the bush around Pearl Beach. He mentions that the pictures look a bit funny when first displayed, but if you double-click on them you should get a panoramic movie if your browser has Java or Shockwave enabled.
