A Rare Venture Down South
As the summer draws to a close, I took the opportunity to join some family on holiday in Cornwall. Since my last visit was 7 years ago it was great to have the opportunity to re-familiarize myself with all the local sites, and be able to enjoy the stunning coastlines and scenery as a photographer for the first time.
One of the places I had my heart set on visiting during my time down South was Godrevy; to get photos of the lighthouse on an island in St Ives Bay. When I was there, the tide was too far out for the shot I was hoping for, but I was still treated to this stunning sunset.
Another place on my "to-do" list was this beach at Bedruthan Steps. So named because of the 149 steps from the top of the cliff to the beach. This place is famed for the giant rocks and stacks that rise out of the sand. This shot was from my first evening away - a good start to the week!
The above picture features St Michaels Mount. This impressive sight lies just off the shore of Marazion in Cornwall. This was the only morning I managed to get out to take phots during my time away, as a result of some fairly severe weather that week. But I think it was definitely worth making the effort on this particular occasion.
In the short five days that I was away, I was able to tick off all the places on my list to visit, and on the whole, each location offered up some great results. However, I still feel like I've only just scratched the surface of what Cornwall has to offer.
