Photographing Cornwall – Tintagel
Grab the camera, jump in the car and drive…. in five hours I’m here in Tintagel
I have been dreaming about photographing Cornwall coastline for a long time. There are so many places to photograph, so many places to visit, so many things to discover.
When I was travel to Cornwall for the first time in 2017, I choose Tintagel. As many of you know already, this is the place of King Arthur. Tintagel Castle is linked with the legend of King Arthur, for centuries this dramatic castle and coastline have fired the imaginations of writers, artists and even the photographers.
I have found around the Castle three beautiful places that fired my photographic interest: Tintagel the town, Tregatta coastline and St Nectans Glen Waterfalls. Tintagel is a place with many interesting things, photographic opportunities, traditional Cornish food and culture. If you go there, you have to visit the town the castle, the old post office building and many places around. Tregatta coastline is a place of tranquillity and mindfulness, a place where you cand stay and watch the sun how is melting in the ocean. St Nectans Glen Waterfalls, are 10 minutes drive from Tintagel, park the car and walk for 20 minutes. The landscape is breathtaking and once you reach the waterfall, you will feel the peace and fully relaxed.
The next day, the weather wasn’t so nice. The next stop was St Ives but was heavy rain, then the World’s End same weather and the final destination was St Michael’s Mount, Marazion. Three destinations with huge photographic potential where I will certainly come back.
Photographing Cornwall – Eden Project and Port Isaac
Eden Project a dramatic global garden housed and Port Isaac is the house of Doc Martin
I come back to Cornwall in 2018, this time for Eden Project and Port Isaac.
Eden Project is a complex is dominated by two huge enclosures consisting of adjoining domes that house thousands of plant species and each enclosure emulates a natural biome. The largest of the two biomes simulates a rainforest environment and is the largest indoor rainforest in the world and the second, a Mediterranean environment.
Port Isaac is a is a small fishing village on the Atlantic coast. The village has served as a backdrop to various television productions, including the ITV series Doc Martin, and is home to the singing group, Fisherman’s Friends.
Port Isaac has a lot of photographic potentials, the coastline is just amazing and the village is full of photographic opportunities, such as the buildings, people, the shops, the pubs…
