I took this at lunchtime a couple of weeks ago. I had this famous vista to myself on a cold and windy day. The flat light gave a somewhat magical feel to the shot.
Along the coast a little from Cape Cornwall, heading south, is Porth Nanven. You can actually drive to it, but walking in is far more satisfying. The beach seems to be all large honed stones and rocks. I used a 3-Stop filter to allow a 2,5 sec exposure to slow the water’s movement.
I spent a day walking the South West Coast Path starting in Cape Cornwall down to Land’s End. Cape Cornwall is all that Land’s End (with its commercialism) is not. A calm and peaceful place.
I am down in St Ives for the weekend. For the first time with a Big Stopper. A two minute exposure.
I shot this in June 2014, as I was walking along the South West Coast Path from Newquay to Perranporth. If you are a fan of Poldark, you might recognise the view as it is used for many of the beach scenes.
I took this at the bus station with the best view in the world, about an hour after sunset.
I went back to Porthmeor hoping for a better sunset last night, and I was rewarded. What a great place.
I had fun shooting on the harbour in St Ives last night.
I missed a fantastic sunset on the evening before this one, and the sunset on this evening was not fantastic but there was some nice colours over the Island on Porthmeor.
I was very lucky to have an helicopter flight over St Ives and the surrounding area today. We flew over Cape Cornwall, Land’s End, Mousehole, Penzance and St Michael’s Mount before heading over Hayle and finally St Ives. Shooting out of the helicopter was hard due to the angle but I’m pleased to have captured this image.
