The Lizard peninsular is one of my favourite areas of Cornwall. This photograph was taken from the sea wall at Porthleven looking towards to Loe Bar, a bank of shingle and sand that separates Cornwall’s largest fresh water lake from the sea, Gunwalloe and the headland at Mullion. A fabulous stretch of coastline..

  4. A really beautiful photo, Adrian. That sky looks quite threatening.

    • Thank you Sylvia. It was all looking a bit threatening but by the afternoon we were enjoying bright spring sunshine so we had the best of both worlds that day.

  5. Beautiful dark image. I only regret that you didn’t show us the lake on this same post.

    • Thank you Shimon. I’m hoping to visit the Penrose Estate, the lake and the Loe bar very soon. I wasn’t able to do that the day I took this picture. I meant to mention that I would be dedicating a post to this interesting natural geological phenomenon in an upcoming post.

      • Your mention of the bank/lake caught my attention: sounds interesting and I look forward to seeing more.
        Great sky and a pretty wild looking day!

      • I’ve just booked a mobility tramper at the Penrose Estate and I’ll be travelling down to Helston tomorrow to get a closer look. This wild weather was producing the swell for the surfer pictures I posted a little while back. The sun came out in the afternoon and the surf was still there, the best of both worlds. Thanks Noeline :-)

    Love the little painted houses huddled together dipping and rising into the distance .
    I agree ChillB, a lovely stretch of coastline … so many places to explore along its scalloped edge !

    • Thank you Poppy. Perhaps we’ll get the chance.. Hoping to visit Penrose this week maybe. :-)

  7. I like the spray of diamonds you caught! Wonderful.

    April 6, 2014 at 4:01 pm

    • Thank you Karen. There was quite a bit of spray flying about. I was glad to have captured some of it.

  8. Incredible seascape and tremendous view!

    April 6, 2014 at 8:00 pm

    • Thank you Phil! It’s a lovely piece of coastline whatever the weather!

  10. Love the dramatic sky and water shooting up on the left…great stuff.

    • Thank you Randall. One of those grey Cornwall days when the sky just seems intent on squashing all colour out of the landscape. Thankfully the sky then becomes the subject as much as the landscape.
