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 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 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.
This was taken in July 2015. The golden hour was giving some particularly great colours of the lighthouse at Godrevy and the headlands of Gwithian and St Agnes as the sun set. I can’t wait to return in about six weeks time (unless I can work out a way to get down for a few days before then).
