soft rock

Just a few miles northwards, the rock at the coast is noticeably different to that at our local beach. It is softer, so erodes with a completely different feel to the textures and shapes visible. The barnacles and limpets certainly love it, and I think the limpets have had something to do with the creation... Continue Reading →


Last week, a gallery of rockshapes, this week a few alternative shots of the stream that flows out, over, or through the beach (all three really), with the force and speed of it determined by how much rainfall has swollen the two separate streams that join up just behind it.

It's a rare day when neither of us is working, so we could go to take a clifftops walk with the dog together. Even rarer was the bright and relatively still day recently.

Some exposed stonework in a traditional Cornish hedge, all the stones selected one at a time for the best fit, by eye and experience, as it was being built by hand many years ago, and no doubt now providing a whole dry and relatively warm ecosystem of its own for all sorts of nature. There... Continue Reading →

the road ahead

I've got quite used to the one picture a week posting schedule. It seems quite manageable to find one picture worth posting on my blog, once a week.

millook cliffs

I was doodling around on the social site Mastodon when I saw a very familiar sight. Someone had posted a shot of the fabulous Millook cliffs, and talked in his post about how he had waited for a woman walking up the beach to enter the frame, to give an idea of the scale of... Continue Reading →
