Five Photos, Five Stories: Day 5

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.

My final photo is of light. And where better to capture the golden evening light than in a yacht harbour where the boats huddle in for the night and cast their reflections in the mirror-glass-like water. (please click image to enlarge)

My nomination today is Anabel from Anabel’s Travel Blog who takes us to her favourite places and can tell you anything you want to know about Glasgow. 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. A very calm and peaceful evening Cathy, with a lovely restaurant where we had just had a delicious meal – very fresh fish dishes – you’d enjoy dining here 🙂

    1. We had a good couple of weeks there Sue, the light was amazing pretty much all of the time. But it is especially nice to capture it on water. Hope to get some sunsets on my next visit.

        1. Oh wow, envy! I plan to go sometime, but as I have house move in the offing, I need to be around/conserve my energy/ do some more serious sorting 😦

        2. House move is what keeps me going back Sue… good luck with yours! You managed to find one a lot quicker than I am doing 😦

        3. I’m having to downsize, and I want to be near friends…took me a year to find somewhere, though…and I now have to hope everything comes together OK…..

    1. Seems like others feel the same about this image Sue. It was a very calm evening and as you say, lovely soft warm light.

  1. Beautiful shot, Jude. I now have to go backwards in time (on your blog) to view more of Cornwall!

    1. There are a lot of Cornish posts on this blog (and the flower blog too) Emilio. You might be here for a while… 😀

    1. Thanks Gilly, I think they all look better full screen, but the light is especially clear in this image.
