Over the past few weeks I’ve been taking a course down in Penzance.
I don’t often venture much further South than my stomping ground of Redruth/Portreath/Hayle, but when I do it is somehow always sunny.
This rang true once again this week, and as I was driving down the A30 along Mount’s Bay (the Cornish bay that encapsulates Penzance, Marazion and St. Michael’s Mount in the most stunning of views), I knew I couldn’t get away without taking a few quick snaps.
Over the last week or so we have been blessed with terrific Spring weather; sun in the sky and completely cloud-less, but masked with a slight haze. With the ocean perfectly still on this particular day, I whipped out the camera & wide angle lens, which is now a (rather heavy) permanent companion.
As I was driving home, I felt compelled to capture St. Michael’s Mount in all its glory in the sun. It only takes a 2 minute detour from the A30, so it happened!
It was very worth it.
This incredible castle on an island is one of Cornwall’s most iconic landmarks (along with our ol’ engine houses of course!), and it always brings back memories of walking up there as a child and eagerly keeping an eye out for the giant who lived there.
A few quick snaps and I was on the road again with the sun setting behind me.
I can’t wait until it starts getting warmer, to the point where we can leave the house at 6pm and stay sat in the sand dunes to watch the sunset until 9 or 10! Exciting!
