Landscape Photography – Perranuthnoe Beach Cornwall

Sometimes you feel you have captured something special, and with this one I felt I had.

It had been a busy day in front of the computer and it would have been so easy just to put on the TV. On the coastal path that evening the world seemed to slow down and after taking this photo I stayed there until the sun dropped behind the headland.
Taken from the coastal path looking towards Perranuthnoe. My local beach and one of my favorite locations. Perranuthnoe is also a foodies delight with ‘The Cabin, Peppercorns Cafe and The Victoria Inn.

Perranuthnoe Beach Cornwall

Through the eyes of a child

This photograph was taken at high tide at my local beach in Cornwall. The camera position is very low so as make the rocks in the foreground look quite big. The reality was they were more like pebbles.

Taking pictures at knee height shows us the world through the eyes of a child. It reminds us of a sense of wonder which we sometimes forget when we are rushing about.

Thanks Phil

When you miss the sunset – keep shooting

The sunset of this particular day was stunning.  I realised as I finished a client website update I did not have long.
In the Winter once the sun approaches the horizon you have 10/15mins max before it vanishes   As I parked the car I saw the last part of the sun disappear behind the headland!….I was gutted…..
Not wishing to have a wasted trip I ventured down to the far end of the deserted beach and crouching down took some photos.

I had forgotten to take off the polarising filter which darkened the image further but it really highlighted the fading colours.Thanks  Phil

St Michaels Mount Cornwall – A fairy Tale Castle


In the Land of Giants, Myth and Legend

In our modern world of technology and being permanently connected we can lose touch of that childlike sense of wonder.

I am lucky that my morning walk takes me past St Michaels Mount in the far west of Cornwall.  My mind might be on client reports or digital marketing, but then as I round the corner of the coastal path, the majestic St Michaels Mount appears.  At that point everything seems possible, as that sense of wonder descends upon me.  This photo was taken on a mid Winters morning and the castle looked particularly magical.

NB: If you are wondering where the giant is, his crouching just around the other side.

Best wishes

Port Isaac Harbour Cornwall

(Cornish: Porthysek)

Port Isaac is well known for being the home of Doc Martin and the Fisherman’s Friends singers.  It is a lovely destination and pretty much un-spoiled.  We go there quite a bit as we have several clients in the area.  This photo was taken during a break from a Classical Strings engagement.  There are plenty of walks in the area and I would strongly advice not driving into the village.  There is plenty of parking at the top of the hill overlooking Port Gaverne.

On this particular trip we stopped off at the Cup Cake Cafe which was a good choice, however, there are many good places to eat and drink in Port Isaac.

Photograph info : Canon 7D Lens EFS 5 -85  ISO100
