Bantham Beach to Burgh Island view

The unspoilt Bantham Beach, looking over to Burgh Island. April 2017.


Had a very pleasant visit here with my niece, Bex and my mum, followed by a fantastic meal at the local pub, just up the road.
This view from the coast path sums up the attraction of the place. A gorgeous, gently-sloping sandy beach, surfing waves, an island and the hotel where Agatha Christie and her social group used to party!

Make the most of it - a developer intends to build here soon :(

The photo says it all.



Does that strike a chord?
(It so happens it was taken last year at Bantham beach but that's not relevant.)

Poster Pic of the day

My work is available as posters and here's the one I've picked for you today. Click to see it bigger and customize with your size.


Inspirational Guidance series: The full Desiderata by Max Ehrmann: Go placidly amidst the noise and haste... With a touching photo of a Dartmoor Pony yearling foal, starting out on its new life, it really suits and complements the words.
The poem has inspired young adults who are coming of age since the 1920's and is as popular today as it ever was. It's been given as a gift by loving parents, grandparents, godparents and aunts and uncles as essential life-wisdom ever since it was written.
They've found it to be one of the few ways for such wisdom to get past those raging hormones, giving support to the upcoming generation through their rebellious years and beyond...

Start of a Cornish Autumn - wrapped canvas Canvas Print

Pic of the day

Here's my chosen picture of the day for this blog and I hope you enjoy it. It's presented as a fine art wrapped canvas. Click to see it from different angles and customize with your size.


English Scenes series A view of the beginning of Autumn in Cornwall and taken in the grounds of the stately home at Mount Edgcumbe in Cremyll, Cornwall.
The picture is of a woodland walk scene where late afternoon sun is flooding through the trees and dappling the autumnal reds and golds with its angled light.
This is a beautiful image in the impressionist tradition, showing a typical English scene at the start of Autumn and bringing with it a sense of peace and serenity.
