Porthminster Beach #1

Keeping it simple this week as an unforeseen family incident has interrupted my peaceful life in the south-west corner, but these images were taken just before that took place. Porthminster Beach in St Ives around 8 p.m. on a beautiful evening. I spent a couple of hours wandering the beaches and photographing the sunset. Little did I know what the future held for me and primarily, my son, just 48 hours later.

You may not see too much of me in the blogging world for bit, as I need to go away, but I will try to pop in to at least like your posts, if not comment. And hopefully it won’t be too long before I can walk on these beaches again.
