Good Morning Everyone,
This year, for the very first time, we spent some time in Cornwall.
We had been across to France, to stay with my brother-in-law, and after catching the ferry to Plymouth, we headed into Cornwall.
We camped on the cliff top near Tintagel (famed as the birth place of King Arthur) and had THE most glorious views out to sea.
Our first exploration along the cliff top to Tintagel took us through what is called Rocky Valley. It is steep, but incredibly beautiful, with views of cliffs, sea, wild flowers and birds.
The pictured bridge crossed a tumbling stream that rushed between the rocks on its way to the sea.
I will add an Internet link if you press here which shows the Google map of the area. You will be able to see the camp site where we stayed and zoom in to see the coastal path and Rocky Valley.
Have a lovely week, Bev :-)

Good morning Beverly,
Useful link attached, gave a good idea about the place.
The trail leading up the rocky hills well maintained to the benefit of travellers, though might be not an easy task with steep climb.
I am sure the sight from up there is wild, exciting and intriguing.
Hope to see more from Cornwall, for you is just around the corner...

Hello Beverley, this is quite a beautiful landscape here. I like the way you included a patch of blue sky into the composition. Lovely green. Good take.

That looks like a beautiful walk, and the bridge is the perfect lead in to invite the viewer into the scene. I had heard of Tintagel before, but I never actually knew where it was, so thanks for the note too. Lovely corner of blue sky too.
All the best

Le sentier en bord de mer semble très beau et assez facile à marcher. Le point de vue à partir du pont donne de la profondeur à l'image ainsi qu'une belle perspective sur le sentier. Maintenant il ne reste plus qu'à nous montrer la petite cascade qui passe dessous.

Really nice shot of this historic area using the old wooden bridge as a lead into the scene. Looks like you would have to be pretty fit for this cliff walk and have a good stout pair of walking boots on. Lovely shades of green separated by the little winding path leading towards the top of the cliff and the beautiful blue sky.

An interesting note and a well composed picture. The bridge provides good depth into the scene and the path up the hill makes a nice diagonal line. We were here, probably at this place, in 1988 when I took this picture. I don´t really recognize this view here, but I recall the beauty of the landscape here.

Our dance friends come every year in Cornwall for dances, bring always nice postcards to Belgium, a wonderful area.
You took these picture out of a very well angle with the small bridge in foreground this cares for depth and perspective
Sharpness and colours are very nice taken
Nice captured, pleasant to look at.
Very well done, TFS.

The wooden bridge provides superb lead in lines leading the eye deep into the back of the image and also providing excellent diminishing linear perspective and vanishing point. The blue sky contrasts well against the yellow green vegetation. The hikers in the bg provide scale and context. Tfs!
