Just back from several weeks at Cornwall, United Kingdom. There we had beautiful weather and visited some nice locations, like: The Lizard, St. Michael’s Mount, Trebarwith strand and Bedruthan Steps.
The first days we had clear blue skies. This is not the kind of weather where I hoped for. There’s only one thing. Adjusting to the weather. Fortunately, the possibilities there too for at the Lizard. We stay there at Housel Bay (Hotel tip!). It’s a great and wonderful area with a lot coast footpaths. I think we have never walked so much as in Cornwall.
Cornwall is also ideal for landscape photography. So we traveled from the Lizard to St. Michael’s Mount. Just take there some nice slow shutter speed landscape photos from the Mount with upcoming ty.

I’ve tried several times to take some nice photo shots on Land’s End. Unfortunately there was bad weather to photography. That is the only location on my list what failed on my trip at Cornwall. Maybe someday I returned to this wonderful and famous location.
Later at The Lizard we’ve got more clouds and some thunder (my first thundershot!), but is was a beautiful time there.
After a few nights we traveled to Tintagel. The domain of King Arthur. We stay there several days. Of course we visited Tintagel castle and saw Merlin’s Cave.
This was also for me the possibility to photography Trebarwith strand, nearby Tintagel. But in the evening there I was a little disappointing. The sky was clear again. Too clean, too blue. All the Britisch people are happy with the nice weather. But not me!!! But when the sunset begins there came the clouds… (See photo at the top of this article) My day was good again!
One another item on my list is: Bedruthans Steps. So we drive on a beautiful evening to Bedruthan Steps, Carnewas. It was a gorgeous evening, with clouds and flowers. Spring was just like in the Netherlands, started late. This gives magnificent scenes. Rocky coasts, flowers on the cliffs and a wide ocean for you.
