Porthcurno

Reference: CO58
Location: Cornwall
Gallery: Cornwall,

The weather forecast gave me little hope of dawn colour from the beach at Porthcurno but all the group were keen to meet up before breakfast. It’s a great location for sunrise as it’s very close to the guesthouse and the view from Porthcurno to the Logan Rock headland faces east in contrast to lots of the locations on the West Cornwall workshop which have a westerly view and therefore better for sunset. As we made our way down to the beach I could see some clear patches and colour in the pre-dawn sky, we would be setting up only 15 minutes before sunrise which is cutting it a bit fine and so I tried to encourage everyone to work as quickly as possible. Over the next 20 minutes we had some lovely light and everyone got some great images. My favourite was this one taken 6 minutes before sunrise.
