St.Michaels Mount, West Cornwall, UK (39 photos)
Photo size:
As I live only a few miles from St.Michaels Mount I tend to wander over there very frequently. This means there are many images of this iconic location on my Flickr photostream....here they all are in one big post!

The Mount after Sunset - It's been a horrible grey and damp day down here in West Cornwall, so thought I may cheer myself up with a colouful image of Mounts Bay. If this doesn't do the trick then a trip to Penzance for a take away curry might....now where are those car keys?

Red Sky at Night - The sunset over Mounts Bay this evening was totally spectacular. The sunset went through many different stages from yellows to reds and everything in between! Here's one from the red phase. More to follow when I've sorted through them.

Doesn't look so dark if you kindly <a href="http://bighugelabs.com/onblack.php?id=5246637459&size=large" rel="nofollow">View On Black</a>

Red Sky at Night - A wonderful, if not a little cold, early evening at St.Michael's Mount. A long beach and only me and one other person walking their dog on it....mind you the pub looked full!

Canon 5D/17-40mm/Lee 0.9 hard grad.

Light on the Mount - St.Michael's Mount lit up for all to see. Glad I'm not paying the electricity bill, mind you in a way I am as I am a member of the the National Trust and the Mount is a Trust property!

Thanks everyone for all the recent and welcome comments on my pics.

The Rising Tide - Huge apologies to those folk who took the time and effort to kindly leave comments on the previous deleted image. Upon studying the image a little more closely I decided I didn't really like it, so sent it to the bin! Sorry to waste your time like that and please don't get too annoyed with me!
Here's a better one I think.

Evening at St.Michael's Mount - After what must be the busiest tourist season ever for Cornwall, Mounts Bay has returned to some peace and quiet, I even found a place to park my car in Marazion!

The Mount - Yet again it's another image of St.Micheal's Mount... which may be due to the fact that I'm lucky enough to live just down the road from it.
This is the jetty that the ferry boat uses when the tide is in and folk can't walk across the causeway.

Light on the Mount - The National Trust tend not to light up St.Michael's Mount very often, tonight was an exception to the rule though! This shot was taken after dark hence the blueness of it all!

St.Michael's Mount - I Know it's been done a million times before but I just liked the light around the Mount tonight. Lots of photographers around  the Mount this evening.... I even had wait in turn for the jetty! The photographer in front of me said he was going to 'photoshop out' the painted white squares...they are a part of the jetty so I've left them in!

Mounts Bay, Penzance - A colourful early Spring evening. This image was taken from the slipway looking over towards St.Michaels Mount at Marazion in Cornwall. When the tide is low you can walk over to the mount via a causeway. This image was taken at full tide.
Lee 0.6 ND and Lee 0.6 graduated ND filters used for this image.
Sorry about the unlevel horizon, I didn't notice this until after I had uploaded the image.

Please  <a href="http://bighugelabs.com/onblack.php?id=4480069548&size=large" rel="nofollow">View On Black</a> to see the approaching rain clouds more easily.

Perfect Evening - A local lobster boat returns to Marazion just as the sun sets behind the Mount. This is  an image from my recent archives as my arthritis and the rain have stopped me going out for a while!

The Mount, Penzance. - Just purchased B+W 10 stop filter, its apparently for commercial use for photographs of furnaces and the sun, but now I can take long exposure photos in bright daylight! The filter is so black you have to focus first, lock the settings, screw on the filter and using bulb, time your exposures with a stop watch. I took one photo with an exposure of 4 mins! I'm going to have fun with this!
