You will have seen photos of St Michael’s Mount before on Travel Words, but never like this.

St-Michael's-Mount

Sitting in Mount’s Bay (Cornish: Baya an Garrek) the island is cut off from the mainland twice a day by the tide. This was taken from a lay-by on the minor road, the B3311, running between Penzance and St Ives. On the header photo you can see the small town of Marazion, Prussia Cove headland and in the background is the Lizard.

    1. We have been living in a cloud the past couple of days! And lots of mizzle, but fortunately lots of sun too. We do inside stuff on the mizzle days and head out on the sunny days. Seems to work 🙂

  1. One of the places we visited on our Cornish holiday a couple of years ago. It was beautiful but not like this! A bit hazy. Experiencing Cornwall envy, I’d like to visit again.

    1. Most of the times I have tried to photograph this from the beach I have not been happy with the results. Always hazy or the sun in the wrong direction.

    1. An unexpected sighting on the road back from a garden with no where to pull up motivated me to make a stop at the lay-by. I have driven past on many occasions but never stopped!

      1. Big skies perhaps, Jude. But the light is mainly from the east, until the approach of sunset. Down there, you benefit from southern light, then get the best from the west! x

    1. I do miss the town and the history and the convenience of walking up to the market, but I love the light here and the views. It is nice to have a garden too. I suppose I have always been a wanderer and I always wanted to be back by the coast ever since leaving Cape Town.
