Windy Walk, Wild Waves and A Long View

07 Jan

One of our favourite walks is from Chapel Porth up the cliffs to Wheal Coates. It was so wild and windy that we only made it to the top and down again. The waves were wonderful, crashing and crossing in the bay. As the sun began going down, the effects were quite spectacular. The paths up had been made into gullies by the month’s torrential rain and new stones were exposed. Click on any photo for more detail. I think the effect in the last photo is called Bokeh but I don’t know how I achieved it! Perhaps it was the salt spray getting on the lens.



In the distance on the drive home is an old engine house (I’m not sure which one. I will look it up and come back) and the sky behind made it a ‘must stop the car and take a photo’ moment!

    Wonderful scenes. I’m hoping to go back there this summer. 🙂

    Raw rage. Breathless. You picked a good day to be seaside especially when illuminated by Winter sunlight -the purist and brightest.

    Your photos really capture the essence of the ocean; it is so amazing to feel the salt spray on your skin, to hear the force of the waves, and stand in the presence of something so magnificent.
