Five Photos, Five Stories: Day 1

I’ve been invited to take part in the “Five Photos, Five Stories” challenge by Alison of Scene by Minerva. The challenge is quite simply to “post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or a short paragraph and each day nominate another blogger for the challenge”.

My five photos are going to depict what I love about Cornwall. The light, the colours, the coast, the history.

Godrevy LighthouseGodrevy Lighthouse  on the eastern side of St Ives Bay, west Cornwall. Facing the Atlantic Ocean it is popular with both the surfing community and walkers, photographers and even writers. It was the inspiration for Virginia Woolf’s novel “To the Lighthouse“. (please click image to enlarge)

My nomination today is Lynne Ayers of  Beyond the Brush Photography – who is an excellent art photographer. Absolutely no requirement to join in, only if you want to.

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. I really want to get to Cornwall someday; I have such imaginings of it! Your picture makes me want to take a long walk along the coast there. 🙂

    For some reason, I was following your blog but only on the Reader, not by email. Since I can barely keep up with my email notices on blog posts, I rarely get to my Reader!! I’m glad I found your travel blog and am now signed up for email notifications!!

  2. I intend to get back to Cornwall one day – your post has me even more determined!

    1. Enjoy my Cornish ‘series’ Jo. I hope it shows why I love it down there. You back in the UK then?
