A few days in Cornwall was something I was very much looking forwards to despite the nearly 400 mile drive to get there (which didn't hold as much appeal). However, some 7 hours later I arrived at Lands End, the south-westerly tip of the Cornish coast, and the view of the rugged coastline certainly didn't disappoint.
I stayed at the Lands End Hotel and I heartily recommend it. The hotel is wrapped in a very large conservatory that provides open views whilst tucking into an excellent breakfast or whilst fine dining in the evening. To be able to simply step outside the door and find yourself by the cliffs, with views of rock formations and the ocean below is just incredible.
I was reasonably lucky with the weather as only the final day was a washout with low cloud and near zero visibility. My wife and I explored the delights of St Michael's Mount (near Penzance), Porthcurno beach with its golden sand and clear turquoise waters, and finally a specific photography stop was made at Bedruthan Steps (despite the very poor weather). During my stay I took a variety of landscape images, some of which were long exposures as I made good use of my Neutral Density, or ND filters. A special selection of my images are in the Gallery, so please do take a look. (Below are a few samples).
