It has been a while since I have got around to putting my thoughts down on this blog. I have not been out doing much photography recently, and as this is a photography blog have not had the material to work with. However I had a recent break spent in Cornwall which I was hoping was going to be enjoyable to say the least and at the same time let me do some photography when I had some time.
Not everything went to plan, as with all good holidays, we had to make some adjustments to our expectations as over the period both my wife and I came down ill with very chesty colds. This meant that neither of us felt like doing the walking we had planned and the walking to photo locations in Cornwall is hardly ever easy due to the coastal terrain. So not wanting to stay at our accommodation we chose locations where we could appreciate the scenery by not venture too far from the car.
Godfrey beach, a National Trust Site, is always a good choice, with large car park overlooking St Ives Bay, and the light house and seal beaches a few steps away.
We did keep returning to Sennen Cove as the harbour car park is right on the front and charges are very reasonable. In addition there is access to refreshments and fish and chips just along the front.
Another location to sit and enjoy views from a car is Cape Cornwall accessed through St Just. This is a National Trust Site so if you are a member parking is free.
Penzance harbour parking is another option. Looking at the harbour and observing the comings and goings of users especially early evening can be entertaining however parking charges do apply, in theory.
