Gunwalloe cove the home of BBC's Poldark

Remember that last episode on the first series of Poldark on BBC when the boat had run aground and there was barrels of food and that on the beach. Well it was filmed down the road from me at Gunwalloe cove and its a lovely place and only a five minute drive which is an added bonus. I love going down there when the weather is warm and dry and try and get some good landscape images. I have done portrait sessions down there before as well which is always fun with two beaches to play on and plenty of gorgeous scenery.

Every time I go down there I get different images and tonight was no exception, the light was amazing and there was barely a soul down there which is all the better for pictures though you can see the silhouettes of a couple down on the beach on the picture above. It really is an amazing spot and well worth a visit if you're local or visiting. Doubt you'll see Mr Poldark down there though, bet you ladies wish you could though however ay?

The sea thrift was out in full bloom and filling the sides of the cliffs with the beautiful hues of pinks and purples. The sun was just setting as I arrived so I managed to capture some long exposures as well as a few landscape shots. I even ended up getting my feet wet but was worth it for the few good pictures I managed to get.

Gunwalloe other than the home of BBC's Poldark is also home to a small church and church cove which are both lovely beaches as well and I will forever feel lucky living so close to such an amazing Cornish treasure. Cornwall not being my hometown but I have adopted it since moving to Cornwall. 

I started my photography career with landscape photography and I still have a huge passion for it. It can amaze you with the results you can achieve and sometimes you look at the back of your camera and think wow! These are the moments I live for and this is what keeps me picking up the camera every day and continuing to learn and take new and exciting images.
