19th August 2011

Posted on August 19, 2011

Have you noticed the heather and gorse at the moment? It is quite breathtaking. Out on the cliffs near where I live at Nanquidno and Nanjizal is stunning – a glorious undulating patchwork of mauve, purple and yellow. It is quite difficult to capture in a photograph the impact made when seeing it in person – the massive stretches of it, yet with so much beautiful and intricate detail and colour. Anyway, I like trying – here are a couple of my attempts.

        

I recently took a few photos at a Victorian Harvest day, held on a farm above Mounts Bay. A team of 3 heavy horses ploughing, a threshing machine powered by a traction engine, various horse drawn carts and all workers were Victorian clad. It was a great insight into how things used to be done, and a wonderful spectacle for all photographers like me.
