With the flag blowing out straight and the sea crashing on the rocks you can tell that it was a bright and rather windy on the day that we visited Perranporth.
Perranporth is a small seaside resort on the north coast of Cornwall, 6 miles southwest of Newquay, 7 miles northwest of Truro. Perranporth and its 3 mile long beach face the Atlantic Ocean. Cornwall's dramatic Atlantic Coastline is fascinating and atmospheric. From the wide open sandy freedom of Perranporth to the secluded beauty of the St. Agnes heritage coast, the whole coast is scattered with old tin mines. The north coast is well known for its fabulous surfing beaches at Perranporth, St. Agnes, Porthtowan, Portreath and Holywell Bay.

A splendid well composed seascape. The purple flowers in the foreground make an enticing delightful anchor point. Nicely exposed to capture the motion in the incoming tide. Top class technical presentation as ever.

Interesantan tekst o odmaralistu sa opisom, lep pogled i trenutak ...
Dobar trenutak snimka, kontrast i perspektiva, lepo pokazano mesto i trenutak sa velikim talasima na vodi.
Sve najbolje u novoj nedelji koja je pocelo, srecno.

a simple but charming picture of this seaside resort. you made best use of the easy waves and the soft sunlight to give a very inviting and relaxed atmosphere to the image. the foreground is made beautiful by the lovely flowers while the rock with the single flag is an attractive focal point.
thanks for sharing and have a nice evening

Lovely composition and soft colour -that rock with a flag on it has a swimming pool on the sea side which refreshes the pool every day but be warned the water is mighty cold even o a warm day.:) Great beach for surfing too, I used to spend hours down on that beach after school. Thanks for the memories Les.

Hi Les,how i wish to be there me too! I like a lot places like this,with only the sound of wind and waves and with the best sensation of peace and quiet! Magnificent cut,beautiful purple carpet made by the flowers on the green coast and a great quality too of detail and colors! Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

I love scenery like this one with sun and wind painting amazing pictures. The waves look quite high and one can see some of them splashing on the rocks. Good capture of the dynamism of this scene. Nice choice of POV and the lilac flowers included in the composition add loads of charm to it. In fact this right corner contrasts very much with the rest of the scenery.
Thanks for sharing and enjoy your day

this is a really beautiful natural composition. The rocky shore looks impressive. I like the little flag, it adds a nice touch, similarly the purple flowers nicely decorate the foreground. And the sea seems indeed quite disturbed.
