Blurred, but still my best (most complete) shot of Barbara Hepworth' sculpture (plaster, 1958). Seen in the Barbara Hepworth Museum in St. Ives, Cornwall. When I say "complete" I mean to be as close as possible to the sculptor's ability to let the sea speak through her. The weather and light that day were very poor and I also was not well enough to keep the camera still. Yet, the formidable power of the sculpture will hopefully get through.

I thought the sunset was not going to come to anything on this evening.

But a gap in the clouds alowed a little light through so I said thank you very much.

A late evening surf under colourful clouds at Porthmeor Beach

of Porthmeor Beach, St Ives - an archived image - early morning low tide.

Taken from behind the houses on the other side of the bay. St Ives is a pretty seaside town and fishing port in Cornwall, England It has become well known for it's artists! The Tate St Ives Gallery, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, is also to be found nearby at Porthmeor.

It was immediately after this shot that the heavens opened and we made it to a doorway to shelter from a torrential downpour and then to the pub for a warm. This is Porthmeor beach St Ives Cornwall .

Lovely skies over Porthmeor beach St Ives Cornwall.

I liked the shape and colour of the wooden bench. Also I liked the blurry bench and St Ives in the background. My Canon has developed a fault since I took this, so I am sad. I've found some simple fixes on the internet, I hope one of them works.

My second favourite beach, Porthmeor, has these houses / artists' studios backing onto it. The houses, and windows, are all different. There was a sea mist blowing in at this point in time. The weather was atrocious but on Porthmeor, everything is right

A rainy evening on Porthmeor beach St Ives Cornwall.

Early morning at low tide on Porthmeor Beach, St Ives - first signs of the sun as the clouds clear over the Atlantic and that wonderful light bathes the beach - priceless.

C’è un sentiero che parte dalla spiaggia di Porthmeor …

costeggia le alte scogliere che sprofondano in un mare dal colore cangiante , dal blu intenso al verde smeraldo , al turchese … un mare che infrangendosi sugli scogli urla e gorgoglia ….

si snoda tra spiagge dorate, prati di fiori selvaggi e il verde brillante della brughiera …

E mentre si cammina lungo il sentiero respirando il vento , il sale e l’ aria dell’oceano , bisogna tenere un occhio rivolto al mare …non è raro intravvedere foche e delfini nelle baie più larghe …

Another scene of flat ocean and deep blues on Porthmeor Beach, Cornwall

A six shot pano of Porthmeor beach, St Ives Cornwall

The mystery within the mist,

The destiny within the dream,

The secret within the silence,

The longing within the love.


It's that time of year again, Cornwall beckons. Can't believe that the seasons' wheel has turned so quickly! In a couple of hours Jay and I will be starting our journey into the dark night and heading on our merry way towards the magical light of St Ives for sun, sand, surf and the solace of the sea. It's been a bugger of year since last we were there but all things pass and there's a healing to be found by the eternal ocean.


I hope this post finds everyone well in body and mind, and may your own summer be full of joy and light. Take care but remember to dare! :-)

Actually this was taken in Wales! I've been motivated to fish in the archives for more beach scenes!

A re work of a shot taken in February 2010 when we went down to St Ives for a family funeral. This was taken just after 9am as I was not able to get out for sunrise, there was still a lovely glow in the sky which was warming on a sad family day .

I took this through the Porthmeor cafe window where we had supper one evening . . .


Playing around - not sure what I was trying to do that day - maybe being deliberately obtuse. Being generous to myself I could argue I was trying to catch some subtle colours, without the distraction of any details :-)

on a deserted Porthmeor Beach, St Ives at the end of surf, no people!

I was really tempted to crop this but then again I wanted to show the areas of light and shade on the beach as the sea rushed back and forth..
