Woods and woodland in Cornwall.
Woodland have been chopped down and used or sold in Cornwall over time. Not much remains in the south west but I have found a small place I call heaven. Most weeks I go there more than once to walk around with my dog and breathe in the gorgeous aromas. In autumn, especially after rain, when the sun comes out and warms everything up it creates special scents. Both my dog ad I love the Cornish woods.
As we stroll through, I notice the sunlight breaking through the canopy of trees above. It looks wonderful.
Where we go for walks, there is a stream nearby so drinks are available after steaming up in the woodland.
Mounts Bay on a quiet morning provides the ‘mirror’ for sunrises that make them spectacular. Reflections in the ‘millpond’ are gorgeous. The other morning I caught such a sunrise with colours that were awesome. Never sure they look as good in photo though. What do you think?
View through my works window.
I read this on social media the other day and it occurred to me that I probably have the best views from my works window. Most days I go places of absolute beauty and all I have to do is take photos and enjoy the scenery of my day. On a day trip to Porthgwarra I got this:
It must be difficult to NOT find scenery, views and objects to paint and sketch in Cornwall. For my part, I find myself incessantly getting my camera out taking photos. Just so much to show off in Cornwall 🙂
Another day, we went to Mousehole and en route I saw this beauty:
A single sailing boat in a sun-drenched Mounts Bay.
On Friday 28th September we visited Marazion with it’s long golden sandy beach where horses were ridden. A wind surfer in the bay enjoying a little breeze. Sun-worshippers on the beach catching sun rays. Wonderful blue sky with fluffy cream clouds above and the blue seas of the bay. With scenery like this, what’s not to be happy about?
On this day, 89 years ago, a young girl was born. Her name was Alva and her name is used today in our business name. Party on girl, wherever you are! Happy birthday!
