On day two we will be exploring some well-known locations such as Godrevy Lighthouse and Botallack mines, as well as lesser known beaches. There will be opportunities to shoot large vistas, use long exposure techniques (assistance available) and to explore the intimate landscape.


To ensure you get to the correct place please use the co-ordinates, rather than the postcode.


Godrevy lighthouse 9:30

Parking at 50.235743 -5.392080

Do not park in the main car park but continue along the road until a parking area just before some barriers.

We will be shooting here at high tide so it is important to be wary of waves breaking over the rocks and to ensure you have an escape route to the south at all times. Shooting off the cliff tops is possible but the views are better from the beach.


Depart for Botallack mines 11:30

Parking at 50.142846 -5.6907525 Postcode TR19 7QG

Here we will be shooting images of the old mining buildings. The walking is fairly easy but the views are from high exposed cliffs.


Depart for Porth Nanven 14:30

Parking at 50.118935 -5.699589 Postcode TR19 7NT

Sunset shoot off the beach and rock structures. The beach is covered in large boulders. It is a short walk from the car to the beach but the beach is not easy to move over.

Clothing and equipment : warm and waterproof clothing.

Challenges and accessibility : the locations involve walks over rocky terrain and shooting from very high cliffs as well as scrambling on boulders on the beach. The locations are not suitable for those with mobility restrictions or a fear of heights.
