Photographer's Note

Hello Everyone,

So much better in large format, right click for New Tab.

My last photograph showed a view from the coastal path between Tintagel and Boscastle, in Cornwall.

Many people thought the coastal path looked like an easy walk and, in places it was but, closer to Tintagel, the coastal path went through a very steep sided valley, called Rocky Valley, for obvious reasons, where walking was a little more strenuous.

Rocky Valley (Cornish: Glynn Duwy, meaning deep valley of the river Duwy) is a small valley in the parish of Tintagel.

The valley has been carved by the Trevillet River in Trethevy around one mile east of Tintagel. At their highest point the slate canyon walls tower over seventy feet above the river.

Rocky Valley is a place of exceptional beauty. The valley is owned by the National Trust and is home to 161 different species of moss.

The South West Coast Path descends into and out of the valley a little way inland due to the sheer cliffs on the coast.

My main photograph showed a sky which was a little uninteresting so I cropped most of it.

I will add a workshop photograph, showing the valley from a higher point.

Have a lovely Sunday.
It is raining hard, here, in N.W. England but the land is desperate for a little water, so no problem, Bev :-)
