  1. This is a really dramatic photo, Adrian. I love how the tin mine buildings really stand out clearly, even though they’re so small. :)

    • Thank you very much Sylvia. I’m glad you enjoyed this one. :-)

  2. That looks an awful lot like some of the shots I took up in Maine along the Atlantic Ocean. I haven’t posted those particular ones yet, but they’re going to look really familiar to you!

    Nice shot – you did a good job with it.

    • Thank you Nancy. I had heard that the north eastern US coastline shares a lot of the same characteristics as the Cornish coast before. I will very much look forward to seeing your pictures. :-)

  3. I can feel the sea breeze… makes me want to be there so much! :)

    • This beach is one of my favourite places. I hope you can visit soon Tracey. :-)

      • Hoping to get to Cornwall sometime during the summer… can’t wait! In the meantime I’m loving being transported there with your photographs :)

  8. What a beautiful blog you have. Such amazing photos. Love the layout and the text. Takes me back to my childhood.

    June 20, 2013 at 10:55 pm

    • Thank you very much! Really appreciate your comment.

      June 21, 2013 at 7:10 am

  9. Serene composition, even with those threatening skies. It still amazes me that those buildings don’t just slide on down that slope.

    June 20, 2013 at 10:59 pm

    • Thank you Gunta. The rain wasn’t far away. Sadly I guess those building will just slide down the cliff one day but the Victorians clearly knew a thing or two about building. :-)

      June 21, 2013 at 7:12 am

  10. I’d love to see it in natural colors :-)

    Stunning image.
    You have a real talent at taking these beautiful beach and coastal photos. I’ve kept one of my favourites in my email inbox so I can review it from time to time.

    • Thank you Vicki. I really appreciate that.

      June 21, 2013 at 7:14 am

  12. So very majestic! Gets me to think of how powerful nature can be!

    June 21, 2013 at 1:56 am

    • Thank you. It can get pretty wild down there when there’s an Atlantic storm raging.

      June 21, 2013 at 7:15 am

  13. Oh, that’s just gorgeous. I love the subtle colors.

    June 21, 2013 at 3:49 am

  14. Beautiful image Adrian, great composition, dramatic sky, moody tones, subtle lead-in lines…..and very sharp.

    • Thanks David. Much appreciated.

      June 21, 2013 at 9:03 am

  17. What a beauty, Adrian! I always photograph Wheal Coates from the cliff. I’ll have to go and check out this beach!

    June 21, 2013 at 9:27 am

    • Thank you Malcolm. There’s a little National Trust car park at Chapel Porth and you can access the beach from there. You really need to aim for low tide as there isn’t a beach at all at high tide.

      June 21, 2013 at 12:07 pm

      • Thanks for the info. I’ll check it out..

        June 21, 2013 at 6:26 pm

  22. I like the drama in the sky and the tranquility of the beach. That is such an effective contrast.

    June 21, 2013 at 8:26 pm

      June 22, 2013 at 7:37 am

    You make a palette of grey shades in your image so appealing and restful ChillB .
    Very lovely. My eyes just follow around the coastline to the mist and rocks in the distance… with a sense of somehow perfectly balanced opposites .. craggy rocks enveloped in softness .

    June 22, 2013 at 8:43 pm

    • Thank you so much Poppy.

      June 23, 2013 at 7:01 am

  25. Your pictures always look so good partly because of the way you frame them, It makes them POP. I wish that I could do that.

    June 23, 2013 at 1:48 pm

      July 8, 2013 at 5:26 pm

  31. There is almost a Winter feel to it, Adrian…all of that near-pristine white. So very nice….

    July 10, 2013 at 1:10 am

    • Very perceptive Scott. This picture was actually taken on the 15th December last year. :-)
