After quite a few grey days, the forecast for the next morning was great, so at 04:20 I set an alarm and went down to the harbour for some blue hour and sunrise photography. I was pleased to find the tide was out but there was still some water across the harbour. This meant that the boats were not afloat (and therefore liable to move on the water during long exposures), and the sunrise was a treat.
Something different from me. I took this a couple of months back on a late autumn day. Even though a weak sun was out, the cold water spray from the fisherman’s hose would have made cleaning the nets a cold and unpleasant task. I hope this image goes some way to capture the hard life that fishermen must face.
As 2017 comes to a close, I am pleased to share this picture with you of a wonderful sunrise I spent in the harbour in St Ives a month ago. This year has been a challenging one on the family side as we said goodbye to my dad. It is the first serious loss I have experienced and it hit me hard. I have had a tough run at my day job which has also knocked me for six. On the positives I have achieved some of my 2017 resolutions, but I hope to develop my photography 2018 and dedicate the time I need to make that happen.
For all those who take time out to have a look at my page, I wish you all a very happy holiday and say a big thank you – your visits mean a lot to me.
I am down in St Ives for the weekend. For the first time with a Big Stopper. A two minute exposure.
I have not been out shooting for a few weeks due to some work and family matters so I am continuing to go through images I shot on Boxing Day. Normal service will hopefully resumed shortly.
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.
