The view from the coastal walk above Poldhu Cove in Cornwall, looking towards Church Cove.
I presume it was a little breezy as some of the foreground flowers look as though they have moved. Love the image though, the two headlands beyond give depth to the shot.
Off to Cornwall in june, can't wait
A very lovely view very well taken - gary
Thanks, Martin and Gary.
Just a little breezy, Martin. The movement in the flowers was the primary reason why it's been sitting unprocessed in my files for some time. I decided in the end that there was a sufficient number of sharp flowers to try to do something with it. Not sure if it was the right decision, though.
You'll have an amazing time in Cornwall - will it be your first time?
super colours and good foreground detail
Some fantastic colours in this Ian especially in the sea and that headland.
Devon/Cornwall mmmm. Somewhere else I'd love to get to.
Very pretty Ian. That is some colour in the water!
Many thanks, Mark, Martin and Dave.
Martin, You must try to get down there sometime - it's a beautiful part of the world.
Not exactly the sea colours that we're used to, Dave.
The distant patches of light makes this for me Ian.
Beautiful image, great colours,
Er no Ian, been rather more times than I can remember, but this is the first time as just the two of us, thats one of the reasons I can't wait!!
Many thanks, Paul and Mark.
Aah, I see, Martin - a vision of schoolboys in a sweetshop springs to mind!
'tis a beauty Ian, do you have a landscape version too? I reckon it would work even better..well possibly
Rich, That's a great point. A landscape format would have provided greater emphasis on the distant lit cliffs (and less on the blurred flowers) which, as Paul points out, are probably the strongest element. Something to remember for the next time.
Beautiful image and great composition.
Regards, Rainy Iannucci
Beautiful vista - Jeff
Makes me want to go there now Ian. Wonderful coastline in full bloom. Ron.
Magical image Ian, well done my friend, I look forward to the wild flowers arriving in Scotland.
All the very best
Ian, wow, what can i say. This truely is a masterpiece bordering on genius, a simply breathtaking view that just goes to remind me, even with all the troubles this country has, why i love it as much as i do. Fantastic work
Lovely comp and well deserved RC!
Fantastic image Ian, a really powerful & vibrant scene with some fantastic colours & light.
I keep complmenting a visit to Cornwall in late April, do you know if there will be any flowers around on the cliff tops at this time of year?
Many thanks, everyone, for your kind comments.
Hi Chris, I think May be the time to see the flowers at their best. I gather gorse is flourishing in April but I get the impression gorse flourishes at any time of year!! Having said that, it's been quite a mild winter, hasn't it....and so perhaps there may be something to see in late April.
Cornwall looking at its very best, a delightful capture indeed...
Evokes the vibrancy of early summer. Lovely image.
...so sorry for my English...can't express what I think......just amazing Ian!
