Working With Waves
This weekend, my parents came down to visit me in Falmouth. With a stunning week of high temperatures and blazing sunshine, most of which I spent in work, it was the ideal time to show off Cornwall; My second home and though I will always be an ’emmet’ of sorts, somewhere very close to my heart.
On Saturday night we took a stroll down to Church Cove then ended the evening watching the sun set in Porthleven with a bag of chips. Sunday saw me with the whole day free and I decided to show Mum and Dad a spot on Cornwall’s North Coast that I only recently discovered. The main focus of my previous trip to Chapel Porth beach was Wheal Coates Engine house which seems to cling perilously to the jagged rock. This trip though, my attention and my camera was focused on the incredible surf.
There is nothing to these images but for the appreciation of nature. An untameable and unforgiving force pushing forth for its highest time, all one can do is observe, and eventually be forced to retreat from its driving path. Witnessing such natural power and ferocity, it is impossible not to be mesmerised. To be reminded once more of the true wildness that surrounds our tiny Island is to experience sublime beauty and establish a sincere respect for the sea.
