Last Light at Pen Kernow ...

By sut68      
Hi all, just got back from a fabulous trip South West - to Corwall. managed to meet up with some fellow EPZ'ers in Billygoatgruff [for a few shoots] and his lovely wife Bee. Then later in the week Paul Morgan and James Parsonage [at Godrevy]. Feeling absolutely knackered now, but happy looking through some of the shots I bagged whilst there Smile

Fran and myself have made a small pact to only upload a single shot in the order they were taken, so this is literally from our fist night here and is not representative of my favourite shots from the hols.

Shortly after arriving at our cottage and unpacking our gear, we made the short walk down to have a look around Priest's Cove only to find Mr Barraclough [Bill] composing some shots with Bee patiently waiting by soaking up the sun. After initial introductions, we all headed to the pub for an early dinner and a couple of very welcome local ales ... then headed back to Priest's Cove, leaving Bee to watch Dr Who at our cottage with Beth for an hour or two Wink

We only got some magical light for a few minutes, but having moved around the Cove a little more - leaving Bill & Fran nearer the tidal pool, I was lucky to capture the sun setting just to the left of Cape Cornwall [Pen Kernow] and across the cove Smile

Single shot using a 0.9 ND grad [hard] + 0.6 ND grad [soft] + 0.6 ProGlass ND [if memory serves]

Right, I think I need a beer and a feet up moment after a long drive back north, so will catch up in a little while. Cheers for looking in, I'm sure Fran will be upoading a little later on too ... when she gets back in Grin

Beat me to it, Paul!! Tongue

Photoshop just crashed whilst I was chomping through my first from here!!
Like you I'll most likely be uploading in order of shooting....

Fran said you'd be getting this when we both spotted the light doing some magic! And it's a cracker as I always knew it would be! WinkTongue

Absolutely great to meet you both and I've got to say it was a real privilege to be shooting alongside you!
Hope it's the first of many occasions (and that Beth wasn't completely bored stupid!).

I'm off to have a another go at my shot now....Grin

Hey Bill, glad you made it back safely mate Smile

Quote:Fran said you'd be getting this when we both spotted the light doing some magic!

Heh, heh ... but if you do remember back to the evening, I did mention that this position from across the cove would pick up the light at sunset ... hence my being unsociable at that point Wink Tongue

Was great to finally meet up with you too mate ... and your good lady also!!! Looking forward to seeing what you got now ... c'mon, enough of the excuses, get it processed Wink


EDIT: It certainly did Paul and it was great to catch up again mate, take care!!!

Cracking light on those rocks mate, and a super sky to top it off.

Seems like a good week was had, and we'll get to here of it in nightly novel sized installments!!
