The Buoys are having a Party!

On the rare occasion this month when the sun has been shining during our shopping trips in Hayle I have taken the opportunity to have a little walk around the south quay just to see what’s happening. Last week I was fascinated by all the buoys on this fishing boat. It looked like they were…

Christmas Baubles Not Necessary

St Ives harbour beach at a very low tide showing how you can walk on the sand around to Porthminster beach . What must it be like to live in one of those clifftop houses?

A short stroll along a harbour quay, cautiously peering into moored fishing boats  (there are no railings to prevent you from falling into the water) provides a photo opportunity for capturing the colours of Cornwall. Even on a dull November day, there are glimpses of cheerful bright colours to warm the soul. Not the fingers…

Colours of the Celtic Sea

This view of St Ives harbour and island is one of my favourites especially when the tide is in and the sun is shining. The colours of the Celtic sea (An Mor Keltek) can be breathtakingly beautiful – cyans, aquamarine and deep blues. Hard to believe this is England.

Hayle: East Quay

Not a place I walk around normally and I have no idea why not. New walkways have been created along the North Quay leading onto the beach. When the tide is out it is possible to walk along the river and onto Hayle Towans and even further to Godrevy if you so wish. Most of…

Harbour View

In winter, the colours of Cornwall appear to be rather muted greys, white and yellow. But enchanting all the same. Yesterday I posted some photos from the harbour in St Ives, one of which was looking back up at the town which is built on the hillside. Some of you may have noticed an unusual…

Winter in St Ives

I love St Ives. It is such a pretty little harbour-side town with three fabulous sandy beaches and exquisite turquoise water. Unfortunately I am not the only one to love it and most months of the year it is virtually impossible to move along the narrow winding streets  – and forget about parking your car…

Winter Sunlight in Penzance Harbour

Albert Pier – Penzance Harbour December 2018. For someone who is a terrible sailor I have a keen interest in boats and anything nautical from a photography point of view. There are just so many interesting ‘things’ on a boat – my favourite ones are those that aren’t bobbing up and down – like these…

Out to Sea

Mount’s Bay through the harbour wall at Penzance – in late December afternoon sunshine.
