Really enjoyed this morning, sat in our Cornish cottage (which we have possession of for the next week, writing). I could happily settle here for the rest of my life.
I am away down in Cornwall for the next week, staying in a cottage overlooking the picturesque Mawgan Porth beach. The weather is being very kind to me and the bright sunny mornings, as well as the gorgeous coastal view, is really getting my creative juices flowing.
I visited this sunflower field last weekend. I have been wanting to visit the field for a good few weeks now but wanted to wait until the blooms started to fade and the sunflowers started to look a little less chocolate boxey and more mysterious:
I was only there for ten minutes or so but I managed to come away with three images I was happy with:
I find it fascinating how photographs can mislead. For example, the above shot of a cobweb appears to have been taken in some mystical, faraway forest. In fact, I spotted the cobweb in the hedge of a huge council estate in Norwich. It was, I admit, a bit a feat to exclude the wall, the house and the lamp post that actually framed this scene just a fraction out of shot.
