Porth Nanven

By mattw    
A beautiful sunset from Porth Nanven, one of Cornwall's smallest and photogenic beaches. The light was fantastic - warm but with a lovely soft touch. The tide had washed up a lot of sand – I have never seen so much here before - and I had the beach to myself with not a footprint in sight! In fact, I had to be careful to hop from rock to rock to avoid leaving any myself which I may regret when setting up the shot. My eye was drawn immediately to the way the river had cut channels thorough the sand, and the dramatic ridges and textures this had left behind.

Also - thank you so much for all the generous feedback and response on my previous upload
