On the most easterly tip of Falmouth sits Pendennis Castle, a fort built by King Henry VIII which saw use right up until WWII.
Next up in my Cornwall series, the lovely little seaside town we stayed in; Portreath. North of St Ives and near Redruth, Portreath proved to be the perfect spot to stay with most of Cornwall within a 30 minute drive.
The blog has been quiet for a little while; a big family holiday to Cornwall followed by a busy work schedule has meant my photography has suffered. April was a month off from my challenges and I’ve decided to make May into a four part series based on the holiday. The first destination on our trip was the idyllic town of St Ives.
My April assignment took me to Hollybank Woods on the northern edge of Emsworth where one small clearing was filled with a display of delicate little native Bluebells.
Another brief post for this week, April is proving to be a busy month. We took a blustery walk along the coast at Bosham at the weekend. Since my March assignment entry I’ve been enjoying black and white again so here are two colour and three B&W.
The first of my April posts is short and sweet. No specific challenge this month but I took a quick trip to Emsworth Beach to try out some long exposure daytime photography with my new ND filter, and used the results to experiment with the now free Nik Collection processing plugins.
For my March assignment I decided to return to Emsworth Train Station (see my earlier challenge post), this time in daylight.
The final week of my March Challenge sees us on another great day out with the kids, this time to see Thomas The Tank Engine at the Watercress Line, also accompanied by Grandparents.
