Granite, butterflies, flowers and the sea
Thursday, 18th July 2013
The top of Zennor Hill is strewn with the most amazing granite formations. Above is a typical scene. The views out to sea, over a 4 thousand year old field system still being used today are wonderful. Alas, on this night the sea and sky was mired in a heavy haze so I concentrated on taking photos of the granite. We are coming to the end of a heat wave here in the UK. I haven’t posted much lately. I have either been too busy at work or enjoying the weather.
Last week, on 11th July, we are on the sand dunes at Upton Towans on the outskirts of Hayle below Godrevy; an important nature reserve run by the Cornwall Wildlife Trust.
A fortnight ago, on 4th July, we were at Rinsey Head between Praa Sands and Porthleven.
I have fun taking photos of the waves. I took lots, here is one of them.
Climbing back up to the coastal path just as the sun was going down I saw this little caterpillar surounded by wild carrot.
