September 3rd 2010


A long exposure of waves over rocks at Porth Nanven in the West Penwith area of Cornwall. This is one of my favourite places - I could sit for hours here! I think this may work well in black and white, perhaps mainly concentrating on the blue channel; will have to give it a try when the mood takes me.

We walked from Porthgwarra to Sennen. It is such a glorious stretch of coast, and with the sun shining, it made for a wonderful day out.

Visited Newlyn Fish Festival today - very busy, but a good outing; bought six mackrel for a barbeque tea. On the way back to the car we passed this group of musicians, The Busmen's Holiday, who were playing outside Newlyn art gallery. They really were very good, and were having such fun performing together. I ended up staying and listening and watching for over an hour!

A picnic and bottle of chilled white wine as an accompaniment to the sunset at Pedn-men-du above Sennen Cove made for a lovely end to the day - unfortunately we never did get to see the sun set as the large bank of cloud descended faster than the sun!

On holiday in the South West of Cornwall. There are many swallows, some still very young. It won't be long before they begin their long migration.

Taken for a DPChallenge contest, 'Still Life in black and white'. Natural side lighting from the left with a gold reflector at front left to provide some fill light, whilst still keeping shadows.
