Cornish Light

We had a week booked in Cornwall in mid Feb, I was afraid that after all the bad weather Cornwall was even still going to be there
But what I found was beautiful light and an abundance of rainbows
Hope you enjoy as much as I did

By the way these were taken with my EM-1, I used the 12-60 as my walk around lens and it worked great - did take a selection of M43 as well and all lenses saw the light of day during the trip so a mixture used in these shots

It started with Moonlight

A walk in Falmouth


Passing Ships (or are they?)

Maenporth Rainbows - There be GOLD on that island - now how do I get there


After the storm - a young surfer ventures out

And enjoying the magic ever changing light of St Ives




And some St Ives Rainbows




Thanks for looking

Re: Cornish Light

that's a very nice series of shots and I love the way you end them with the rainbow arch, a touch of Walt Disney there

Indeed, a fine set proving that not everything's been washed away!

Re: Cornish Light

A good selection of images reminding us of just how beautiful and rugged Cornwall can be in the appropriate light.

Re: Cornish Light

Thanks for the comments
yes very lucky overall with the weather, only got wet once and then I was taking a chance

the light was ever changing but the rainbows appeared to last a while
believe it or not the rainbow hitting the island was from the holiday home balcony

cheers

Dave

Re: Cornish Light

I enjoyed this set too. Some lovely memories captured here and the rainbows are special.
My favourite - the lighthouse and rainbow. Makes me feel I was there.

Re: Cornish Light

Superb, I particularly like no. 1 and the rainbow shots. Ships anchored and not underway!
