After a 5 year absence, summer returned to Cornwall this weekend and it looks set to be around a while. I was at Wheal Coates around 5.30 this morning and took this picture, just as the sun came up from behind a hill..
24mm f/11 1/40 sec. ISO-1oo

It’s been a long succesion of very cold wet, dull grey summers but this weekend, the sun came out and the weather is finally how it’s supposed to be in July. People are smiling at each other again.. ;-)

As you know, my friend, we can’t have one without the other…sometimes, anyway. :)
And you’re most welcome….

Now THAT’s a Golden Hour image encapsulated for me ChillB !
It must have been fantastic waiting for that moment – for the sun to creep up and bathe the old mine workings and landscape beyond in its soft golden glow :-)
Wow .. such a different mood to this Wheal Coates compared your prize winning shot of it with the misty coastline .

Thank you Poppy. It’s nice to be able to revisit a place in different light and weather and at different times of the year. As you say, such a different mood. :-)

Glorious light. I like that little snatch of the coastline immediately to the left of the building. It’s a long time since we had a spell of summer weather like the last week or so, isn’t it.
July 10, 2013 at 8:20 pm
What a stunning colour. The sun brings out the very best in everything it touches.
Hope life is treating you well :)
July 10, 2013 at 8:51 pm
Another nice image! Great composition and light.
July 12, 2013 at 2:19 pm
Wow, that’s a long time to wait for summer! Well worth the wait from what I can tell. Beautiful.

It has felt like a very long time. I think last summer it didn’t get above 15 degrees, the sun rarely came out and we had so much rain. It’s how it’s supposed to be this year it seems. Fingers crossed it’s going to last. :-)
