During the two week holiday that my wife Liz and I spent exploring the landscapes and coastlines of Devon and Cornwall in September 2019 we took a couple of days' driving along the English Channel coast of South Cornwall, using our Ordinace Survey maps to seek out less well known places to visit.
One out of the way seaside location that appeared on our map was the beach at Porthluney Bay, accessed along a narrow, winding country lane that you don't want to meet oncoming traffic on.
We arrived here late in the afternoon, with only a few hardy folk left on the beach enjoying the last of the sun.
There was plenty of gorgeous scenery on offer for me to point my camera at, and for this shot I went all the way down to the water's edge in order to include the curve of a gently breaking wavelet in my composition.
