After the Campers had left the Staff made their way down to Porthmeor Beach for a Chinese takeaway and some liquid refreshment. During the fun I tore myself away from the game of ‘truth or dare’ and took some amazing shots of the sunset. This one is my second favourite. My favourite was published previously.
After a very frustrating day (I won’t bore you with the details) we finally had about an hour for a walk. We decided to follow the coastal path from Carbis Bay down to St. Ives and on the way we came to a clearing in the trees which revealed this unique and beautiful view of St. Ives. After visiting on and off for the past 10 years I’d never seen the town from this perspective before. It was absolutely breath-taking. As I captured it a seagull flew into shot, which I think completes it.
As I was walking from the Harbour to Porthmeor Beach I was struck by the beauty of the houses and cottages and when I looked up and saw the sun setting on the upper floor and set against the deep blue sky I had to take this shot. I know it’s a bit random – but I love it.
This shot was taken one evening as I walked from our tent to the Marquee for the final pre-devotional set-up. I stopped in my tracks and headed back for the camera. I got about four shots of this, but this is the best in my opinion.
Note: the horizon is fine, it’s the flagpoles which aren’t truly vertical.
I love the way the light shines through to the sand below and creates the green water in this shot. You can’t beat a shot of St. Ives harbour.
This is a shot of the roof outline of the Tate Gallery just off Porthmeor Beach, St. Ives, Cornwall. I love the contrast of the light building against the strong blue sky.
