Bere Ferrers parish is to the north of Plymouth in the county of Devon, on its border with Cornwall and has a population of approximately 3,180.
The parish consists mainly of the small village of Bere Ferrers, on the banks of the River Tavy and the much larger village of Bere Alston. Both are on the Bere peninsula, situated between the Rivers Tavy and Tamar. Also included are smaller areas such as the picturesque boating haven of Weir Quay.
In bygone days this was a mining community for tin, silver lead ore and arsenic, with much of the surrounding area taken up with daffodil farming and soft fruit, such as strawberries, cherries and grapes.

The early evening light is quite bewitching and sets the mood perfectly. I like the point of view with the boats offering some splashes of colour against the darkened surroundings. The tree makes a good frame for the church tower and creates depth for the scene.

a charming shot this of a charming little haven. Light and a fg harvest that betrays the coming of autumn and bright colours that just add to the effect so beautifully. Spellbinding!

J'aime le point de vue, les deux pieds sur la plage en observant le village au moment ou la lumière décline et ou les couleurs existent encore. J'aime beaucoup les teintes de rose dans le ciel.

Hello Leslie ,
a moody picture , with this late evening light , for this picturesque harbour . It is stunning to see a church so close to the sea . Some "flashy" colors attract the eyes .

I like the atmosphere here, with all these apples on the tree, the nice old buildings in background and the colourful boats. Even the cloudy sky adds a lot. Good colours!
