Portreath to Porthtowan
I cheated a bit on my walk. I drove to the top of the cliff close to the M.O.D land. Lazy I know, but I couldn’t be bothered with starting my walk stomping up the cliff!
At the top, you’re perched high above a horseshoe shaped bay. I think it was high tide when I went. I’ll be coming back to check whether there’s a decent sized beach at low tide because I’m pretty sure I spotted a path down to the beach!
I walked to the headland of the little bay and got a pretty good shot of the view. It was yet another gorgeous summer day here in Cornwall!
The walk is pretty easy going for the most part, but beware… There’s a couple killer hills with steps built in (luckily). They’re a good test on the legs!
The next day I was driving through Camborne, when I saw the clouds lighting up a certain way and knew I had to shoot to the coast. What I saw didn’t disappoint me. I love it when there’s wispy clouds (cirrus) in a sunset. They catch the colour of the Sun, and bring out all the different hues. Awesome to watch.
If anybody recognises this Portreath surfer then let us know, and I’ll try to get hold of him. He’ll be interested I’m sure, and there’s a few more of him too!
I couldn’t resist driving up to the top of the cliff to see what the sunset looked like from there. I probably got there a little late as the colour was starting to dissipate and head into the blue hour. Still a cracking view!
