Day 2 in Cornwall


On day two we were mostly on the north side of the southern tip of Cornwall near Penzance. Again, sunny and windy. Gurnard Head appealed to me as a subject because I knew I would not have time to walk round the far side and see the side that faced the full force of the North Atlantic swell. It was perhaps more interesting to try and hint at it as waves crashed on rocks on either side.

Walking back towards the village where we lunched, the bay was bathed in evening light, made even warmer by the orange bracken of autumn. Waves were breaking around the outcrop and a couple of people on the rocks provided scale

By this time the light was fading but there was still time to look in at Porthleven harbour where in the dying light a few hardy surfers were still enjoying the last moments of daylight. This was in sofr pencil and fine point pen.
