The January skies were dramatic and changeable today with heavy showers sweeping in from the Atlantic, an ideal day for some atmospheric photography on Tregonning Hill in the Parish of Germoe. After our initial steep climb up to Castle Pencaire an ancient hillfort, we were rewarded with stunning views of the north and south coasts of west Cornwall. From the war memorial on the west side of the hill the views over Mounts Bay and St Michael’s Mount are stunning. Walking along the ridge we discovered the preacher’s pit and old mining pits and eventually on the hilltop a beautiful mare called Freya who was out for her daily hack from Rinsey. The going was very rough, footpaths very muddy and but well worth the trek. I couldn’t decide which image to put up today as I had so many from the days shoot, but these two are special for me, today.
