Twilight, Holywell Bay
Twilight, Holywell BayFinal image from my evening at Holywell Bay. With this composition I wanted the Gull Rocks to be central, but needed a strong leading line to pull the eye from the foreground to the horizon. After walking up and down the beach several times, I found this lovely tidal S curve which I felt did the job. Again the shot was taken after sunset, with the sun dipping behind the rocks, highlighting the strong silhouettes. Thanks to everybody that takes an interest in my work, it is very much appreciated.

Headland Layers ( colour ), Perran SandsI have recently printed this image in colour for a customer, having previously posted it on Flickr as a B&W conversion. I was quite pleased with the result after some work. Cooling down the white balance seemed to do the trick, giving the image the feel I was after.......very cold in Cornwall today !!!
Last Light, Constantine Bay
Last Light, Constantine BayFinal image from this visit to Constantine Bay in Cornwall. This really is a location worth visiting at high tide, there are some beautiful rocks, and as the tide rises, there are some great effects with the water running through the gullies.....hope you like it !!!
Beachscape, Holywell Bay
Beachscape, Holywell BayThis was the most surreal I have ever seen the beach at Holywell Bay. It looked more like a lunar landscape after the sun had dropped below the horizon....that's the great thing about beach photography, every time you visit it is different !!! Comments will be very much appreciated.
Diminishing Cliffs, Whipsiderry Beach
Diminishing Cliffs, Whipsiderry BeachSame beach, same rock, different compostion from my last post. I decided to retain some colour for this image, to highlight the green on the cliffs, and add some warmth. My metadata randomly disappears on export from LR, even when enabled ?? another bug.....5 second exposure at f11, focal length 16mm, Canon 5d mk3.
Trebarwith Strand
Trebarwith StrandI was joined on this photo shoot by Flickr friend Brian Pedlar, who was my expert guide for the morning, showing me various different angles to photograph this popular location. Then it was back to Brian's for lunch and talk photography......great fun !!! But my highlight of the day was Trudy's ( Brian's wife ) home made flapjack, which is to die for !!! Thankyou Brian & Trudy
Sunset, Pentire Point
Sunset, Pentire PointJust caught the sun before it was snuffed out by the cloud on the horizon. I was pleased to capture the light streaming across the water.....great place to visit if you are visiting Cornwall.
Surreal Sunset
Surreal SunsetThese rocks at Towan Head Newquay, take on a real surreal feel at sunset. Combined with the lovely shingle beach, it's well worth a visit if you happen to be near Newquay. Your comments are most welcome....
Golden Sunset

Blue Hour, Holywell Bay
Blue Hour, Holywell BayBack to Holywell Bay for this shoot......one of my favourite beaches in Cornwall for sunset photography. This image was pretty much the last shot, before I lost the useable light. I love the blue hour, as the light is more balanced, and you have this beautiful reflective light across the beach and water. Hope you like it, and your comments will be vry much appreciated.
Sunset, Constantine Bay
Sunset, Constantine BayFirst time visit to this Cornish beach. Not the best of sunsets, I was lucky some cloud appeared on the horizon as the sun was setting. I certainly will visit again at high tide, as there are some very interesting rock formations further up the beach.......Have a great weekend all.
Sea Stacks, Porthcotham Beach
Sea Stacks, Porthcotham BeachI had a really good evening photographing this beach on Thursday evening. I spotted the beach while on the coast path last week and thought it had potential for a visit at low tide. Only saw three people over a four hour period !!!........weathers looking good for the next few days.....have a great weekend.

Soft Light on Surf, Towan HeadGreat rock formations at this location.....Towan Head, Newquay. It is very close to the Headland Hotel and Fistral Beach, for those of you who know the area. I find it best for photography around mid-tide.....Have a great bank holiday weekend.
Sunset, Perran Sands
Sunset, Perran SandsPerran Sands is one of my favourite beaches in Cornwall for photography. Visiting on an outgoing tide is best, to take full advantage of the lovely undisturbed sand.....hopefully after all the beach lovers have gone home !!!
Sunset, Porth Joke  Beach
Sunset, Porth Joke BeachPorth joke beach is a lovely cove to visit, just west of Crantock Beach in Cornwall. June is a good month to catch the sun dipping between the two headlands, and mid-tide I find produces the best compositions. Glad the bank holiday weekend is over, and Cornwall will start to quieten down !!! Your feedback will be much appreciated....

Mystical Coastline
Mystical CoastlineMy last image from a great evening at Porthcotham beach in Cornwall. Captured this before sunset, shooting directly into the sun to create a high contrast mono. There was quite a bit of sea spray in the air, which is highlighted by shooting into the sunlight.......your feedback is always appreciated.
Setting Sun, Porthcotham Beach
Setting Sun, Porthcotham BeachFurther along the beach for this composition to capture the sun dipping below the horizon. I decided to go for a longer exposure to give that dreamy feel......Have a great weekend all.
Surf over Rocks, Constantine Bay
Surf over Rocks, Constantine BayThis image was taken at Constntine Bay in Cornwall. I experimented with shutter speeds to capture the surf breaking over the rocks, and settled on 0.5 sec, which I felt gave the best effect of movement. The swell was quite big with an incoming tide, so spray was a real problem on my filters.....more scratches !!!
Dreamy Seascape, Constantine Bay
Dreamy Seascape, Constantine BayBack to Constantine Bay, the same location as my last post,but a couple of nights later. Condtions were quite different on this evening, with less swell and waves to battle against. I was photographing on an incoming tide, and as the water rose it started to spill over into some rock gullies, which gave a nice effect with an eight sec exposure......Have a great weekend.
Horizon Glow
Horizon GlowAnother visit to Porthcotham beach in Cornwall.....amazing how the landscape is transformed during blue hour. It's a case of photographing later and later to avoid the crowds during this heatwave. I will have to walk further along the coast path to find some quieter locations. Have a great day all.......
Radiant Sky
Radiant SkyOne more from Porthcotham Beach.....the sky was pretty amazing as the sun dipped behind the rocks. Hope you all have a great weekend......
The Rumps, Pentire Head
The Rumps, Pentire HeadA very unique place in Cornwall. I shot this image late afternoon, which I feel is best to hightlight this beautiful headland. If you visit and stay on later, there are good sunset compositions on the headland. The weather is shocking today in Cornwall, and I am due to phtograph a horse show later.....hope it is cancelled !!! Have a great Sunday.
