photoblog image Godrevy

Godrevy

Godrevy (Cornish: Godrevi, meaning small farms) is an area on the eastern side of St Ives Bay, Cornwall, which faces the Atlantic Ocean. It is popular with both the surfing community and walkers. It is part owned by the National Trust, and offshore on Godrevy Island is a lighthouse maintained by Trinity House which is said to be the inspiration for Virginia Woolf's novel To the Lighthouse. Godrevy lies within the Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and the South West Coast Path runs around the whole promontory. There are several public car parks on the western side where the National Trust owns and operates a café.

What gorgeous color and light you've captured!
Alan: This place was one reason why I wanted to visit Coarnwall. Thanks, Elizabeth.
A lovely view, Alan, no doubt the N.T. prices are their usual exorbitant level...
Alan: I never got the chance to check out this NT cafe as it was closing by the time I was looking for essential refreshment but in general they are expensive. This location was one reason why I wanted to go to Cornwall.

Très jolie lumière pour cette photo, j'aime beaucoup le ciel.
Alan: Thanks, Martine; the light in Cornwall is quite special.
So lad these beautiful places are kept under trust, Alan. I'd want to see this one!
Alan: They do a fine just with our landscapes; probably the main reason that I support them.

When you read the book, it doesn't feel like this area at all, Alan
Alan: I'll take your word for that, Lisl, as I not so well read as you.

Oh, this is the honey-coloured sand I saw in St. Ives - I love St. Ives and the Bay - a wonderful image which inspires my desire to go to Cornwall again! Yes, Virgina Woolf!
Alan: I can understand why the artists are attracted to this part fo Cornwall as the light is quite special. Thanks, Philine.
I like the inclusion of the man and his dog
Alan: My original thought was across but then it would have excluded the man and the dog. I thought that they added to the image so I left them in.

Interesting commentary and I like the figure, which shows this place to be larger than it first appears.
Alan: My original thought was across but then it would have excluded the man and the dog. I thought that they added to the image so I left them in.

gobsmacked
Alan: Thank you. I was pleased with it.
A magnificent landscape shot Alan, I can see why you wanted to go there. It was good to include the man and dog to give a sense of scale.
Alan: I did think about cropping the image but then I thought the man and dog added some sale to this.
Absolutely beeuuuttiiful!
Alan: Thanks, Mary. For years, I've wanted to see this for myself.
