We finally managed to make a return visit to the North Cornwall coastline and I found some time to take some images of some of the beautiful scenery that the area has to offer.

One of our first trips was to spend an evening watching the sun set at Lands End. A couple of stops had been planned along the way but my car decided to have other ideas and after about four hours waiting for an AA man to drive, source parts and eventually fix my brakes, we finally made it to Lands End. We still had a nice amount of time and I was able to hunt around and fine tune some compositions even though the vantage points were somewhat limited.

Over the following week, I spent some time taking pictures on Fistral, Little Fistral, Holywell, Trebarwith and Crantock beaches and also had a fun hour at a very quiet but fast-flowing St Nectern’s Glen. We also resisted an old favourite of mine, the ruined Chapel of St Michael at Roche Rock which always looks great but looked particularly moody set against overcast skies.

The onset of Coronavirus across the globe was taking up a lot of news-time while we were in Cornwall and, although it was out of season, everywhere was very quiet. Little did we know that two days after we returned the country would be placed under strict social isolation ‘lock-down’ and all non-essential travel would be stopped, dropping the country, and in fact, a lot of the planet into a very difficult time ahead.
