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. Well I know you love water too. I would have loved to have seen more wild life, but sadly no alligators…

  1. Jude, what a delightful way to start my round of catch up visits! My favourite topic 🙂 Well, one of them! And a super photo too, and you’ll be back there before you know it. 🙂

    1. I thought you’d appreciate the boats. Should have used fishing boats, but we didn’t visit a fishing harbour this time around. Back early June so I’m sure I will then 🙂

    1. I had a look at some taken during the day and they are very different. I like the reflections in the evening light.

  2. The light is idyllic, the reflections calming. I can hear the water gently lapping and the perfect time to be taking photos.
