A Visit to Saltash

Over Easter we drove back to Saltash to visit family for the Easter weekend. I made sure I used the time to take some new photos of the area. This photo was taken the morning before we left – perhaps one of the easier photos as the camera was in the conservatory and a cup of tea was nearby!

Coombe Viaduct, Tamar Bridge and Royal Albert Bridge (aka Brunel ……

Godrevy Lighthouse

I spent the first 25 years of my life living in Cornwall, but when you live somewhere you often don’t appreciate or even know what’s around you. Whilst visiting family, I wanted to take a trip into deepest, darkest Cornwall to get some photos of the Cornish coast so I poured over the map in true Famous Five fashion and found a lighthouse on an island. A Google search found some photos, some of which ……

Steam Train Return Journey

During the stay in Cornwall, I was able to capture the steam train’s return journey too, although lighting conditions were harsh. There must have been around 100 people watching it from the Tamar Bridge car park!

Quoit a Day!

Apologies for the poor pun in the title! Every so often, it’s possible to have one of those rare days that are perfect and this was one of those days. Whilst in Cornwall, I arranged for my parents to pick me up at 9am from the in-laws and drive down to deepest, darkest Cornwall for the day, stopping off at Roche Rock, a couple of quoits and then after a pub meal, watching sunset at ……

Early Morning in Saltash

I really ought to thank one of my Facebook friends, Adrian Oakes, who wrote as his status “Forecast is looking good for sunrise. Another 3am start looming….”. When it comes to early mornings, I tend to procrastinate about actually getting up and going out; I sometimes look for excuses why I shouldn’t go. Which is all very silly as when I’m out for sunrise, I’m one of the happiest people alive. Walking around in the ……
