  1. Brilliant reflections and great in b&w. Do you know why Priest’s Cove? And is it in Cornwall? And how are you surviving not being in Cornwall?

      Not very well is the answer, Megs, but there’s not much choice. Genna and family are with her today so may be a late response. Scuse me for butting in, Jude. 🙂 🙂

      Yes, it is in Cornwall, at Cape Cornwall, and I don’t know where the name comes from, but I’ll look it up. Missing Cornwall dreadfully. Too many cars here and going to and from the hospital every day was very draining. BUT he is home today. Boxes of meds!! And we are going to have to stay up here for another week to check his bloods, but I am hoping next weekend we will be given the OK to head south.

    This is nifty, if a bit sombre looking in the black and white. 🙂 🙂 Suits the mood! I always like reflections.

      The granddaughters were going to go for a swim, but then all these kids came flocking down so they got a bit shy.

    Otherworldly – or rather it has something of a sci fi mood – mysterious portal to another dimension? As per Meg, the reflections are v. striking.

      It is the first time I have been here when the tide is out. Looks very different.

    As much as I love the breathtaking beaches in Norfolk, I do love rock pools, which we don’t have here. I spent many happy hours paddling around rock pools in Cornwall. The large pool in your shot looks to be one of those created for toddlers to paddle in, which is something you hardly ever see now.
    Dunster Beach in Somerset has some excellent small tidal pools, but some of the most interesting I have seen were in Bulgaria, of all places.
    Best wishes, Pete. x

      It is actually quite a deep pool for swimming in. I like rock pools too. The best I have seen were in New Zealand where I saw wonderful starfish.

    Reminiscent of scenes from my childhood holidays in Cornwall

    1. Heyjude says:

      I don’t remember rock pools, but I do remember crashing waves on rocks around Bude!

        I can’t remember where we used to go, but Porthcurno rings a faint bell…rock pools and caves along the coast. The c aves absolutely fascinated me, but alas they didn’t usually go back far!

        1. Heyjude says:

          The best caves are at Kynance on the Lizard.

    I’ve never heard of a rock pool – what a stark looking vista!! I have visions of twisted ankles and blown knees just trying to get to it. What’s the water like?

    1. Heyjude says:

      This is an actual sea pool for swimming in. Just happens to be surrounded by rocks. Rock pooling is when kids go hunting among the pools with a net and a bucket looking for sea creatures such as sea anemones, starfish, crabs… not sure I’d want to swim among them!!

        I learn something new everyday 🙂

  7. There’s a nostalgic feel to this photo – I love it.

    1. Heyjude says:

      I think the black and white works well on this image. Glad you like it too.

  8. Love the composition and the atmosphere through the B’nw. The reflections really make the scene. Jude sorry to be so tardy on post follows and to read of illness in your close family. Worrying times for you – hope there is a full recovery and path to healing and strength again.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Thanks Liz. No worries about follows, I have been very intermittent on the blogs myself. Hope to get back to normal soon, but we have family visiting next week and then Aussie family in September, so I suspect it is going to be a while before I am back in the swing of things blogging wise!

      1. And so it goes with life running at a fast pace!

  9. Love the negative shape that the water creates here. Dramatic!
