Trevone Bay, Cornwall, UK

June 12, 2016


After days of waiting for a decent sunset and some spare time, I got to shoot a place that is literally just down the road from my house. I've lived in Trevone for the best part of 7 years, but I could count on one hand how many times I've been up on these cliffs. 


These cliffs are located to the right of the beach and they have a particularly interesting look to them - all thanks to the layered rock. From the cliffs, you also get great views of Trevose Head to the left and, to the right, Tregudda Gorge (another location that I have to photograph soon).


I arrived at the location to find a beautiful, pink blanket of sea thrift covering the clifftop. I picked a spot where I could showcase the vibrant flowers and I also incorporated an interesting rock to lead the viewers into the frame. 


Once I had my composition, I laid back on the springy grass but there was one thing standing in the way of the shot - the strong wind. In an attempt to stop my camera from blowing around, I used my body weight to anchor the tripod down and get the sharpest photo possible. The thick, grey cloud blew over just in time to reveal more colourful, puffy clouds. That was the finishing touch.
