Cornwall Photography

I am posting some of my personal photography today for a change.

We went to Cornwall on May for a long weekend and these are some of the images I captured there.

Cornwall is a beautiful place, unfortunately we were not very lucky with the weather and it was cold, rainy and cloudy. So, as much as I would like, I am not posting any pictures of sunny golden beaches with bright light…Still, even with bad weather, Cornwall has a lot of charm and it is definitely a lovely place and worth visiting. I hope to go back another time, enjoy the wonderful beaches there and take more pictures in a different and brighter light.

These first photos were taken at Porthleven harbour, where there was a mermaid created by students at Helston College. The tail of the mermaid was made with materials such as DVD’s and Coke cans’ pieces. I found this mermaid a very interesting sculpture that added a beautiful touch the the town.

The next few pictures were taken at St Just in Roseland Church. This church is from the 13th century and it has a semi-tropical garden, as you can see there are a lot of palm trees. Who would have thought that these church surroundings are in the UK!

I really really loved St. Ives, even though we arrived a bit too late and it was getting too dark, so that meant I didn’t take so many pictures.
