The view across Tintagel Bay – 2017 ACN

A short post today to mainly show some recent photographs. Its seems likely some of these will make some kind appearance in the film project that I’m slowly working through. The fit the style and atmosphere and I’ve got my head around how to give them some motion.

Tintagel Bay Panorama – 2017 ACN

These were all taken in Cornwall on our recent holiday there. We stayed in a cottage on the edge of Bodmin Moor and a little south of Tintagel on the North Cornwall coast. Whilst as with any destination in the UK the weather can be variable at best, the landscape is impressive and the history embedded.

Tintagel Bay & Merlins Cave – 2017 ACN

All of the B/W images here were shot on out of date 120 film using £25.00 plastic Helga camera. I still enjoy the unpredictable nature of the process, especially when attempting panoramic images, achieved by not winding the film on completely and panning across to another view of the intended subject. The image below joins the two locations in one scene, Bodmin on the left, Tintagel on the right.

The images below are from the Hurlers stone circle and the Cheesewring Quarry on Bodmin Moor.

A part of the country I would recommend. Changing yet changeless as Sir Henry would say.
