The story behind this image

The two week holiday that my wife Liz and I enjoyed in Devon and Cornwall in September 2019 took us all over the region, taking in the beautiful landscapes and coastlines.

Included in our list of places to explore was the south Cornish coast, and we spent a good amount of time driving around the little fishing villages that line this stretch of the English Channel.

One such spot that we spent some time looking round was Mevagissey, and I must admit I fell in love with the place as soon as I saw it.

With its inner and outer harbour, lined with working fishing boats, wharfs and other dockland paraphenalia, Mevagissey was a sensory delight, and in the end we made two extended visits here, capturing the views and ambiance at different times of the day.

This panoramic view shows the view looking seawards from the wall of the inner harbour, with the early evening sun casting its golden rays onto the buildings higher up on the surrounding hills while the harbour iteslf was in shadow.

The water in the inner harbour was perfectly calm on an ebbing tide, allowing gorgeous reflections of the clouds, boats and dockside to develop, just adding to the loveliness of the scene.
