Photographs of Cornwall (Mainland)

Welcome to my photographs of mainland Cornwall, please click on thumbnail to view a larger image.

Cornwall has nearly 300 miles of coast of varying characteristics. The more exposed north coast is of wilder nature with the highest cliffs around Boscastle having a sheer drop of 732ft (223 metres). However there are also areas of fine golden sand such as Bude, Perranporth, Newquay and St Ives.

The more sheltered south coast has some broad estuaries such as Falmouth and Fowey which offer safe anchorages for boats. South coast beaches consist of coarser sands to that of the north and there are some beautiful picturesque fishing villages such as Polperro, Mevagissy and the fishing port of Looe.

Photographs taken in the Isles of Scilly are shown in a separate gallery.
