For £9.00 i may seriously have to think about that book he has done on cornwall lorraine looks like he has some very good Landscape images from down there...I aint been as far as cornwall yet with the camera but i really must make an effort to do it at some point...i have been told by numerous people and from reading that it is a very photogenic place to visit

Cornwall is lovely....
I have my own favourite bits of course, but there is such a diversity . .
the coasts - both north and south are very differentto each other - the north (where we are) all wild and surfy and great to see Peregrines flying really close to the coastal walk,
the south all subtropical and lush.....
Basking sharks from May onwards.  Dolphins just 5 mins from the house at Port Quin....
Adders, slow worms, otters all within 15 mins..(the adders and slow worms just on the border of our garden).
Deer - everywhere....
Badgers - everywhere
Wallabies - from St Endellion to St Breward....

The moors - really nice to photograph out of season, or in, if you want to take picciesof rare yellow asphodels.....

Ive been told to go and get the dinner on.....

Honestly, some men....
there was me doing great advertising for the Cornish Tourist board and he wants fed!




This is our nearestbit of coast....Port Gaverne. Nice pub about 30 secs from the beach, great coastal walk.  we fish off the point, and on really lazy days the kids canoe on the very safe inlet and I snooze on the sand in our secret cove!

That picture of Port Gaverne brought back some happy memories for me, we used to visit Cornwall in the 1950’s went down on motor bikes pre Motorway days.
Stayed at St Teath , always visited Port Isaac , Rock, Daymer Bay, great times.
