Photographer's Note

Hello everyone,
we recently had a holiday in Cornwall,which is in the south west of England.
We visited Porthcurno on the southern coast of the county; one place that we had never visited before.

There we found a wonderful golden sandy beach,enclosed by steep hills on either side.We clambered up the path, which was quite a pull, until we reached the coastal path.Then we headed west, where after only a short walk we found this view, looking down onto another sandy beach.
The colours were amazing in the sunshine.We sat and enjoyed the sun and the scene.I could have sat there for hours!
Views like this are what make Cornwall what it is.
Also at Porthcurno, on the cliff side, there is the famous Minack theatre,wher plays are acted with the sea as the backdrop.

I hope that you like the view, and thanks for looking.

Adjusted exposure and contrast a little,+2 saturation, unsharp mask,and resized for posting.
