You've done justice to a lovely place Theresa; and I suppose the locals do quite well from the Doc Martin connection!!

the light on the little houses is perfect. I love the pastel colours and the texture in the rendering. Where is this town?

I thought at first you were referring to footwear, and I was puzzled! The figure creates a neat focal point, like this one a lot.

Thanks Ann and Moira.
Moira - lol! Never worn that particular footwear, and don't watch the TV show. My first thoughts were dog conditioning pills, but my daughter gently put me right on that one.... Bob Martins Wink.

Great perspective. The pastel tones and textures are wonderful. Looks to be a lovely place. Yes, tourism has its price. Still, beautiful though. Patti SmileSmileSmile

Thanks Jon, Patti and Jo.
Jo - I'm so glad this sort of scene has been your prevailing memory of our country - there are so many not so attractive areas as well!!!

Don't think I've ever visited this location on my travels around Cornwall, but you've captured a wonderful street scene of the place here, Theresa, and very nicely processed and presented, too Wink

Beautiful capture here Theresa, has extra atmosphere with the moody sky
Doc Martin is and has been a favorite of ours...such a grumpy Doc!
and you get the bonus of seeing parts of the area as well, usually in the sunshine!
I think the shops/pubs are doing so well with the extra tourists, their prices have soared...Sad
but as you say now spoilt, as you cannot move and enjoy the tranquility as well.

Beautiful little back street. Just as it should be.

It is a shame about Doc M. We used to go to PI lots before that show (and you couldn't get down to the harbour easily even then), so I can't imagine what it must be like now. But I do love the programme. We actually stayed in the school house (now hotel) when we were there and had that fab view over the harbour from the second floor.

"Looks like,...'from out of a Storybook," Theresa.

Great pastel colors, hues, tones, & fine focus & clarity. Artistic Work,...indeed.

Have a great Weekend. Smile

Thanks Chris and Peter.
Chris I suppose they have to set these stories somewhere, but it always ruins a place (and makes the locals greedy!) - I know the same has been said of Holmfirth, home of Last of the Summer Wine, though I've never been there myself....

Superb image Theresa. A beautiful place and I agree with your tourism comment, I tried for shots similar to this but was just a waste of time, too busy.

A good capture, devoid of tourists. It is a beautiful place and we visit it regularly, but in the winter months!! Carole

Lovely shot Theresa - and yes tourists are a problem - they even come to sunny Southsea! But I guess everywhere needs them these days, it is one of the few things left from which folks can earn a living.

A favourite and well-known place for me. An excellently captured scene and you did well with the absence of people. Not so sure on the position of the loan figure though, a few paces earlier or a few paces later would have been better for me. (IMO of course). As for tourists, we would be hard pushed without them and at the end of the day, we are all tourists in one form or another.( PS. Doc Martin hits the spot).

Thanks Sue and Rob. I do agree with you both that tourism is a vital part of our economy. It is not the mere presence of tourists that spoils a place, however - as you say, Rob, we are all tourists - and living in the southwest, without tourism we would have very little.

But I do take issue with the way local traders raise the bar just that bit too much, just because... For example we couldn't find a fish and chip shop (in a fishing village), but there was fancy food with very fancy prices in all the little eateries, and this was lunch time in October. I know everyone has to make a living, but sometimes they go too far. Still, who can blame them? If people are willing to pay.... Wink

Excellent photo Theresa of this Port Isaac view, really like this, well done.

When I was there last year I tried to capture this view and failed.
