A distant traveller

By Arvorphoto    
The weather forecast for West Cornwall yesterday evening offered a glimpse of a hope for another comet photo and maybe a sunset. So Plan A was to head to Botallack. This, however, was thwarted by the sea mist rolling in combined with low cloud.

Knowing Cornwall is renowned for micro climates, Plan B was initiated and I headed over to Godrevy and yes, there was clear sky around but also quite a bit of cloud.
Patience is the key. Whilst trying to work out which way the cloud was moving, it became obvious that it was fairly static but, was slowly starting to dissolve and this beautiful view came in to sight.
