Icon

By BillyGoatGruff  
Hi folks.

I've been visiting this part of Cornwall regularly for thirty or more years and never ever photographed this icon of the British landscape.

On the last evening of my latest trip I had not only the opportunity but also some decent light.

I'd had this tribute to Mr. Noton in my head for quite a while, so it was nice to be able to take advantage of the light for once, and also to have the unhurried time to shoot a few frames without the interruption of having to light the campsite bbq!
Thoroughly sated photographically, we then became thoroughly sated gastronomically with an excellent end-of-trip meal at the superb Beach restaurant in Sennen Cove. Lovely Smile

This is dedicated to Messrs Noton and Morgan.

Thanks for stopping by.
Large is probably worth a look if you have the time.

Cheers

Bill

Beautiful light and the slipway gives an almost abstract quality to the image,

Indeed a great photo and well done for capturing the light and ambiance that evening. Looking at it large, I prefer to crop off the very black lower part of the frame, which however does un-balance the composition a bit and it might gain by taking a sliver off the left hand side too... Have you tried a crop like that? Rgds., Adam
great shot

Stunning shot Bill. That's a real beauty. Has a real sense of approaching darkness.

I really like this Bill. It doesn't feel unbalanced to me and with everything centrally positioned it has a nice geometric sense about it!

Many thanks everyone! Most appreciated. (I'm still trying to find the time to catch up with everyone, too!! Busy busy busy...:-()

Interesting point, Adam. As a rule I often experiment with various crop ratios. In this case I preferred the geometric simplicity of my original framing, and don't really think cropping would improve the image.

Cheers
