    Hi,

    Anyone know of any good locations in South Cornwall for some sunrise and sunset beach shoots? I've heard sunrise is good at Porthcurno but any other tips would be much appreciated

    Give pmorgan a pm, he gets a lot of his photographs from Cornwall beaches. How far north/ east can you get?

    Well, St Michael's Mount is great for sunsrise, and so too is Mousehole and St Ives.

    For Sunset - Land End (or cliffs in that area), Sennen Cove, Porth nanven, Cape Cornwall, Botallack, Godrevy, and just about anywhere else where dirt meets water.

    All those locations are within 15 minutes of Penzance

    Any beach in Cornwall is a good beach for seascapes !
    Porthcurno is wonderful, but bear in mind that the sun will still rise and set behind the cliffs at this time of year from the beach there. Depends what you have in mind of course. Porth Nanven is perfect (and very popular) for sunset.
    Understand the tide times before you head off though. Very important for avoiding unplanned rides in helicopters...or worse.

    It most certainly is. Depending upon what time of year you go, you can get some very tasty bodyboarding pictures as well.

    On thing that I would say is that Cornwall isn't just beaches for photography. There is some very nice landscapes.

    I wouldn't actually go to Lands End myself for a sunset picture because it would need to be a special evening to get anything that I would like sky over water just doesn't do it, when around the corner you have the likes of Lanyon Coit which would give you something to focus on.

    There are a million and one disused engine houses that are very photogenic, The problem where you are going (St Austell) are a fair drive away from where a lot of people are suggesting and you are in china clay country so you don't have as many engine houses. But you do have eden and the lost gardens of heligan nearby

    I have family living in Porthlevan, I really should get down there more often Smile

    From memory there`s one or two stone circles as well, not to far away, like the Merry maidens just out side Penzance.
