Landscape and Long Exposure Photography of Cornwall, England's Coastal County

England's coastal county is also it's most southerly. It is a popular location for UK and overseas visitors and it is easy to see why. This collection hopefully showcases some of it's best bits.

The Cornwall coast near Bude is home to unique coastal rock formations. these images represent the patterns that are prevalent throughout this area.


A personal interpretation of the much photographed landmark at Marazion, Cornwall.

'hell's mouth' SUNRISE

Sometime you look on a map and work out where you will hopefully get a good shot with the sun rise also included. Rarely does it workout exactly as planned. This was one such occasion.

godrevy lighthouse

This lighthouse, built on the opposite side of the bay from St Ives sits on slightly offshore from a coastal outcrop, on Godrevy Island. Built in the 1850's, this lighthouse was a response to many ship wrecks caused by "the stones" around the coast. It always seems to over up something different and keeps pulling me back as a location, 


These images, as the title suggests are views across the large St Ives Bay in northern Cornwall's Atlantic Coast. The cornish name for this bay translates as "Bay Of Sand Dunes". On one side of the bay is the cornish town of St Ives, on the other is Godrevy Head with it's characteristic lighthouse.


One of the enduring images of the Cornwall Coast are the legacy that the Tin Mining Industry has left on the landscape. The tin mines, which were the workplace for thousands in the early 20th century, are now derelict and their remains are dotted around the coast of Cornwall. Here are just some images of these ghostly structures.
