The Bedruthian Steps, Cornwall

The Bedruthian Steps, Cornwall

The Bedruthian Steps is one of my favourite photographic locations in Cornwall. It had been a hot sunny day, but as evening drew in the air was heavy and clouds gathered out to sea. The cliff-face was forced into shadow creating a cold blue cast over the entire scene despite the sunny blue sky overhead. I found a viewpoint down at the base of one of the bays, close enough to capture the drama and mood of the incoming tide which appeared to be guiding the clouds in behind it.
