This image fulfilled the dramatic moody ambience I envisaged. Taken from Godrevy Point looking across St Ives Bay with the late afternoon sun battles with the clouds to exert it's influence.
The ancient rock formations reach out to the horizon where the sun set 20 minutes ago.
St Michael's Mount At Night
An early start yielded this image, a minute long, it shows St Michaels Mount as the incoming tide covers the path to the partially cut off island.
Taken from Godrevy Point between Hayle and Portreath on the north coast of southern Cornwall. This image, take just before sunrise looks east towards North Cliffs and Portreath
The stunning coastal rocks in what is known as the Bude Formation formed before the dinosaurs as the earth was 'folded' by tectonic plate movements.
10 Minutes At Dawn
A 10 minute long exposure, started in near darkness and ending at twilight sets it. Taken near Bude in Cornwall.
Force Of Nature
One of the many trees you will see in Cornwall, not far the coast. Often standing in solitary confinement. The prevailing wind direction is this part of the world is obvious.
The ancient rocks point the way across the Atlantic from the Cornwall's north coast near Bude.
The sun makes it's exit over the Atlantic. The view is from the top of a beach where the rocks which formed many years ago have subsequently subsided and are now all slanted.
The Blue Veil
Early morning, perched on a coastal path in the heart of old Tin Mining Country, this long exposure captures a hint of the rising sun as the 'blue hour' recedes.
Pointing The Way
The ancient rocks seem to point out to the Atlantic with intent on Cornwall's north coast.
The Long Goodbye
The onshore wind whips up the sea an moves the clouds, as a break in the weather in the distance allows the sunset to show it's true colours.
If you look closely, this pre sunrise shot at Godrevy Head has scores of rare seals lazing on the beach below. Even from where this image was taken, you are encouraged to make no noise in case they are scared away.
The rock formations on this part of North Cornwall contrast sharply. The light coloured rocks in the foreground present a softness as opposed to the dark jagged rocks behind.
A midday long exposure of the port looking out to sea at Porthleven, one of Cornwall's many small coastal fishing villages.
Not only is the sun taking it's leave but so is the tide.
The attractively named "Hell's Mouth" near the coastal village of Portreath offers excellent views, even on dull and cloudy days like this one.
Evening At Godrevy Lighthouse
One of my favourites from this location, the contrast is colours of the different stones on the coast is a gift for photographers. For more from this location see the 'Godrevy Lighthouse' variations section below.
Twisting The Light Away
This image of the deserted beach at Portreath is characterised not by the land but by the twisting patterns the rain clouds make as they made their way in to soak me 10 minutes later.
Not the most inviting of beaches, but certainly one of the most interesting.
The evening dusk on the Cornwall Coast with Goonhilly Earth Station on the cliff top in the distance where some of earliest transatlantic communications were received.
Lizard Point From Kynance Cove
This monochrome looks towards the UK's most southerly point from one of it's most beautiful, Kynance Cove. The strong wind meant I had issues keeping the tripod still enough. The result is as dramatic as I wanted however.
Prussia Cove At Dawn
This is an image of Prussia Cove, well known for supposed smuggling activities in the early 18th century. Taken at dawn on cloudy morning where the sun was trying to force it's way through.
One of the many derelict tin mines on the north cornwall coast, on a particularly windy day. Not the most hospitable of workplaces.
