Day Three at Lands End With Guy

Today was probably the windiest weather that I’ve experienced while photographing. I’m normally a good weather landscape photographer…but guy has certainly introduced me to the pleasures of shooting in extremely harsh conditions. It was brilliant, I had all my wet weather and warm clothing on and I felt like an astronaut!

We got up early for a hope of a sunrise…which was just that…a vain hope. Nothing worth of our craft this morning. So we returned to our B&B for a hearty breakfast and then booked out. Guy had a great idea to explore the northern Cornish coast, picking out good spots for us to shoot in relation to the weather, light and sea conditions. We were blessed with very strong tides, windy weather. Every now and then we saw the sun, which lit up our chosen composition…but mostly, we got soaked waiting ūüėÄ

 

First we visited an old crumbled¬†Tin mine near St Agnes, which had some great detail with a coastal view. Then moved on and found some really pointy rocks along the coast. We found a great Pasty shop for a late lunch and then finally descended on Trevose Head Lighthouse for some low light work. The strong winds were making the waves extremely interesting, but finding our way along the wet slate rock face was pretty freaky. We all¬†made it, but it was probably the harshest weather that I’ve faced so far…a far cry from my usual wedding or Comercial work!¬†It was a great way to end and epic three days.
