Postcard: 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.

  1. I especially love the horizontal sand patterns – nothing like I’ve ever seen on my beaches. It’s strange isn’t it, seeing the world peaceful before a crisis, with you totally unaware. Find some peace amongst busyness and concern.

      The patterns looked like arrow-heads. I guess from seaweed being dragged out into sea. It was the most beautiful evening even though the town was heaving with tourists. I shall make more forays into the town during the evenings in September. I totally avoid the area now the schools are on holiday.

  2. Beautiful photos! Peace!

    Sorry to hear that, Jude, despite enjoying the photos. We have something of a crisis looming here in Beetley too, so I really do understand. Take care, and see you soon.
    Best wishes, Pete. x
