st ives if the weather is good, North Cornish coast for ruggedness, South coast for gentle beauty.
all of cornwall has good aspects, but west penwith from penzance to lands end and around to st ives takes a lot of beating, you ve got stone circles, qoites, cliffs , moorland ,beaches , wildlife and penty more things to shoot, plus great food and drink . I know I live in Penwith
I'm interested in natural photography (landscapes , untouched places)
try these Zennor, porthcurno, sennen cove far end near gwenvor, zennor moors, plus every head land has different views and aspects , plus the changing light gives new impact to a mundane scene
drive from penzance through newlyn and mousehole to porthcurno then on to landsend , try walking some of the coastal footpath , then goe to sennen , drive from there to st just and on towards st ives,
further up the north coast near tintagel , try rocky valley and st necterns glen
Any Ideas of locations near Newquay ? Im going in 2 weeks and would like the names of other places except for the usual Holywell bay & Bedruthan Steps? Any locations would be much appreciated!
A little way up the coast from Newquay, Padstow & Port Isaac are worth a visit.
A trip to Mousehole is a must. A picturesque fishing village near Newlyn.
Copek - I can second what ZenTog has said! And if you do "go right to the end", consider starting at Sennen instead of Land's End itself - much nicer and it's only about a mile walk to Land's End from there (and parking is cheaper!). A favourite location of a lot of togs on here (myself included!) is Porth Nanven, which is near St. Just.
Nickscape - personal favourites of mine near Newquay include Crantock beach and Polly Joke - 2 adjacent coves to the west.
2 tips for both of you - take your National Trust card with you if you're a member - it'll get you free parking at any NT location! And invest in the relevant Ordnance Survey maps so you can find all the suggested places!
Nick, when are you there? I'm down nr Newquay for a few days from the 11th - 15th
