Penbryn Beach is fairly local to me (within 15 miles) so was my chosen destination for an impromptu trip out after work. This wasn’t long after lockdown had been lifted and our beaches had become inundated with visitors, both local and from afar.
Luckily for me there was a bit of a storm blowing in from the east with dark clouds, rain and lightning so most people had headed back to the safety of their homes, leaving the beach almost empty.
It was a medium, rising tide which give me a bit of time to clamber across the rocks to a rockier section of the beach but I didn’t have long before I’d be cut off if I didn’t make it back on time.
This section of the beach is strewn with rocks and trying to isolate just a few is actually extremely difficult. I chose this composition for the leading line from the big rock in the foreground pointing the viewer along the rocky coastline to the setting sun.
