We had a nice little walk along the cliffs on Tuesday evening at Treyarnon as the sunset promised to be something interesting. The light was nice but with a few too many clouds, although before thy rolled in I managed to capture a few frames this being my favourite.
The weather of the last week down here has been beautiful and sunny, but unfortunately for me and other photographers round here not much in the way of cloud to make the sky a bit more interesting. However we have still been able to get out and about and get some shots to share with you all. First off an Friday evening at Harlyn Bay, North Cornwall for sunset, lovely place but not quite the shot I was wanting or had envisaged but still a nice view all the same. Yesterday we took a little walk along the South West Coast path near Portloe on the South Coast, a wonderful little old fashioned looking Cornish fishing village, that you can imagine smugglers using its harbour on dark and stormy nights. Finally we walked up to the top of Helmans Tor, a wonderful rocky outcrop with a great potential for further images.
We had a lovely walk round Kennall Vale, a great place – river, water falls and many old water mills, well worth a look if your in the area. For more information check out this link
After the recce on Saturday I choose a couple of places for Sunday morning, first off a lovely long exposure of sunrise at Harlyn Bay. Next up a little cove along the coast path on the way to Harlyn just behind the first image infact – cant find a name for it so answers on a post card / email lol. Final image from this little area we went back to Onjohn cove and got a lovely long exposure of a really nice golden light coming through the clouds, we then moved locations actually to Harlyn beach itself and found some great features that will have me going back very soon.
Just made a delivery this afternoon of the biggest Canvas I have ever produced for a customer, I look forward to seeing the image of it when it is finally hung by the customer. Oh just in case you were wondering its 8 ft wide by 2 ft 3″ high
I have been asked on a number of occasions for a panoramic shot of Constantine / Booby’s Bay, so on Sunday, as the light was quite nice we had a little walk and here is what I got. The final image is 6 foot across and can be purchased here
We had a nice day out on Sunday with the sunshine, finishing off at The Bowgie inn for a swift half, I was driving to be fair. After that we took a little wander down West Pentire, over looking Porth Joke. Unfortunately there was a lack a cloud, but the reflections on the sea and rocks were very nice.
Had a little outing to somewhere a little different today – Luxulyan valley, this place is massive and we only probably got round half of it. Definitely somewhere that we will be going back to.
Had a lovely day out yesterday and went to another new beach on the South Coast, then on to what seems to be becoming my favourite beech – photographically anyway, on the North Coast – Polventon Bay.
Again the weather was with us yesterday and we had a lovely day out, finishing at one of my favourite beaches.
Here are few from Sunday of the SV Carl shipwreck at Booby’s Bay, there are a few more to come, but as its a glorious sunny day here we are going out to enjoy it as the last few weeks troubles we have had. After visiting Booby’s Bay to see the 100 year old shipwreck yesterday we managed to get to Trevose head in time for sunset which after all these storms we have had over the last few months, was a welcome sight.
All being said we the weather has abated and given us a couple of nice days this weekend here in the South West. We decided to visit Polperro for sunset yesterday, which turned out to be a very nice evening and some lovely colours. We then took a little trip to a beach I had heard great things about and we had driven past on numerous occasions – Mother Ivey’s Bay. A truly gorgeous beach of which I am sure we will return to. Oh and one last image, the waves were massive at Mother ivey’s Bay, breaking very close in with no real warning – and yes we ended up with wet boots more than once lol.
Hello again I forgot to mention I have just had a couple of wonderful reviews left by some of my customers and thought I would share them with the world. Check out my Testimonials Page for all my reviews.
Hi everyone just a quick post to let you all know that I have got 2 of my images in next years South West Coast Path Calendar. I would have been more that happy to get one image in but to have two is something very special and I must say I am over the moon. If you have time why not pay the guys at the South West Coast Path website a visit and have a look round and also check out the other winners on their Flickr Group.
Here are my images that were chosen by the judges.
I took a little trip to Treyarnon bay yesterday afternoon and managed to get totally soaked just after taking this images as the ‘Incoming storm’ you can see came to land much faster than I could get back to my car. This outing was just a little quick outing to try my new Pro 10 stop filter, which was going well until getting rained off.
Yesterday was the first proper day out with my camera this year. The sun was out and everything was feeling a lot more like spring rather than the middle of winter. We did sunrise on the South coast and sunset on the North and travelled the day in between the two, visiting places all over the places just looking at locations and places – enjoying the lack of crowds. The second image – taken at sunset is from a little beach around the corner from Polzeath looking towards Hawkers Cove.
Welcome to 2014 everyone, Happy New Year, not been able to get out much recently due to work and Christmas. Well we thought we would have a little trip out this morning as the forecast had promised at little respite in the rain and wind that we had been having constantly for the past few days/weeks. This was Portmellon, near Mevagissey at sunrise this morning, the tide was going out but was still giving waves as tall as the houses.
A quick update with some more recent images of Perranporth during high tide last Saturday 1st Feb 2014

It was an early start this morning to get down West for sunrise, but we made it even after the rather steep hill/cliff side we had to negotiate to get my pre-researched vantage point for my image – The Old Penlee Lifeboat Station – as most of you are probably too young and may not therefore remember the tragic accident that befell the crew of the Solomon Browne Life boat in December 1981.
