The weather is always a bit dodgy this time of year but on brighter days, it can be a great time for photographing Cornish sunsets. One of my favourite places to walk the dog and to photograph Cornish sunsets is Praa Sands beach at low tide, just a short drive from #Porthleven. The sand is […]

Cornish Winter

Cornish Winter

November is already here and we will soon be into the Cornish winter when everything quietens down, fires are lit, and people start looking forward to Christmas. Today it’s sunny outside, but the wind is fresh. I had a nice walk with our dog this morning, through the woods and across the hilltop, with superb […]

Loe Bar and Loe Pool Porthleven

Loe Bar and Loe Pool Porthleven

I’ve had some lovely walks to Loe Bar and Loe Pool Porthleven recently and it made a very pleasant change to be looking at Loe Bar and Loe Pool from east to west instead of doing my usual walks in the woodland on the western side of the lake. The scenery always changes, depending upon […]

Summer in Porthleven, What could be Better

Summer in Porthleven – what could be better? Flaming June is living up to its name and it’s scorching here in #Porthleven, #Cornwall. It’s late afternoon and is even too hot to take the dog for a walk. I took her down to the harbour for a swim so she could cool off. Being black […]
