After singing in the hall for Cornwall this morning we did half an hour busking outside and enjoyed the apricity (another lovely word recently learned and meaning the warmth of the sun in winter.) The sculpture in the background is The Naked Drummer, a bronze sculpture by Tim Shaw which was unveiled in 2011 by Queen drummer Roger Taylor, who was educated at Truro School.
A sunset walk on the cliff tops above Wheal Coates this evening brought beautiful golden light and a horse and rider galloping by.

Lovely photos. The shot of the rider, especially.

I was chuffed with that photo of the rider. She went past so quickly I wasn’t sure it would have worked but it did! 🙂

Sometime the unexpected photo opportunities are the best.

Amazing pictures Sally. Those mine ruins make a wonderful image. I do like the apricity so much too, always. Nice word. 🙂

Thank you. The mine ruins are all very photogenic especially at sunset. I was pleased with how they worked out.

Sorry Sally but Roger Tay.or was born in Norfolk in 1949 and moved to truro with his family when he was seven I believe. He was at truro cathedral School until he was 13 and the transferred to truro School……..x

Thank you! When I copied that from a site about the drummer, I was thinking, well I know Roger went to school here. He was at Truro School with my brother but not born here. I shall edit the post. 🙂
