rusey skies

Big skies are a particular love of mine, so it’s a good thing we’re living here in north Cornwall. My landscape pictures are more often cloudscape pictures really, and this part of the world provides plenty of clouds…

These photos are from a walk at Rusey cliffs, north of Tintagel and Boscastle on the coast path. You start by following a rough unmetalled lane heading towards the cliffs, with it initially hiding the view from you because you are deep within the high hedges. Then, as you round a bend which takes you southwards, it suddenly all opens up before you.

We’ve walked this route many times now, and rounding that bend is still breathtaking. Well, except for the times when a sea mist has rolled in, so you can see nothing but the blank greyness…

If you go through the gates at the bottom of the above picture, you head out towards the cliffs. Here you can look northwards, towards Cambeak at Crackington Haven, and can see Lundy Island, around 30 miles distant, in the middle of the Bristol Channel. Again, on a good day that is.

I’ve uploaded a few images from this short walk to a gallery, so you can click and easily scroll through the pictures in full screen.

    1. We’re not too far from the Devon border… in fact on some of my shots, from Warbstow Bury for example, you can see the hills of Dartmoor!
