Up!

Whilst strolling along the cliffs at Godrevy I looked up towards the Point and noticed this person standing right on the edge of the area overlooking Mutton Cove (where the seals bask). After taking the shot I thought it was rather odd. The woman appears to have three legs. On zooming in I realise that…

Changing Seasons – September

Month nine of my photographer’s nature journal. Time to go back to the lanes and see what, if anything, is around. It is a sublime day. Cloudless blue sky, temperature around 17°C and barely the whisper of a breeze. Robins serenade me on my circuit of the lanes and the hill. Yes, a walk around…

Horse and Carriage

Most of the Cornish ‘hedges’ are made out of stone with all manner of native plants finding homes in the nooks and crannies, but occasionally you come across rustic fences comprising of chunky posts and strings of barbed wire – usually around arable land. It is, however, unusual to see a horse and carriage heading…

Changing Seasons – August

Month eight of my photographer’s nature journal. The year is flying by, the dry weather broken by one or two showers at the beginning of the month, but nothing much. Still with the assistance of the sea fret / coastal fog  the fields are once again looking green. As is my lawn. This month we…

Cornish beaches: Polly Joke

It is a V-shaped strip of beach tucked in between Kelsey Head and West Pentire Point on the north Cornish coast close to Newquay. …

the case of the disappearing lighthouse

I woke up to glorious sunshine and the bluest of blue skies today. Decided to nip over to Godrevy for a walk before the shops opened at 10:30 and see if the heather is blooming. Before I miss that too! I was not surprised to see a finger of fog or sea fret spilling in…

Changing Seasons – July

Month seven of my photographer’s nature journal. It is frightening how quickly the year is passing by. The lanes around me have been well and truly scythed to the ground. It does make it easier to see around corners and find the passing places without fear of crashing into a stone wall, but I could…

Changing Seasons – June

Month six of my photographer’s nature journal. A slight change this month. The lanes have changed from the frothy outpouring of the lacy cow parsley with the creamy-white blooms of the elderflower now in evidence and for a while they were glorious in pink and purple. Foxgloves, Red Campion and Valerian ruled the roads. Until…
