December 2017 - A few pictures taken at Porth Nanven which lies a few miles away from St Just down the Cot Valley.
The beach at Porth Nanven is famous for its large granite boulders. The rocks on the horizon are the Brisons.
The cliffs above the beach contain many layers of boulders of different sizes which must indicate the changes in sea level over thousands of years.
A closer look at the layers.
A return visit on a brighter day.
Just after we stopped the car a grey cloud came over and we had a few drops of rain. I was lucky to catch the rainbow over the beach.
With the rain shower gone I wanted to try a long exposure to smooth the waves out.
The large granite boulders are quite tricky to walk over. I wanted to get closer to the breakers but they were quite strong and I did not fancy getting drenched. This is the closest I dared go. The two rocks are the Brisons.
