Woolacombe and Mortehoe
A collection of pictures from around Woolacombe and Mortehoe, this is the location where I go to take pictures the majority of the time and the area I know best.
One of the amazing wonders about this location is that the sun sets to the left of Lundy Island when viewed from Woolacombe during the Autumn\Winter months (after Autumn equinox) and to the right during the Spring\Summer months (after the Spring equinox).
Ollie (my dog) was just out of shot and under strict instructions not to step anywhere near the amazing striped wind patterns that I was about to take pictures of. I love the image of peering though the dune grass at the tranquil golden light.
This was the scene at midday from a gate
familiar to those who have walked this path.
Looking down towards Putsborough and Baggy Point beyond.
At this point the sun was out and shining onto the beach, sea and landscape creating these beautiful greens, blues and golds. So when you look at this picture, imagine you’re walking this stunning path :-)
picture. This has everything I love, the lines of waves, a bit of Morte Point, Woolacombe village and the end of the rainbow landing near the golden sands.
Bennett’s Mouth further along the coast. As I got to Lee, I waited and watched as the sun crept around the rocks on the far side of the bay. As it was broken when it fell between the rocks it made the beautiful star. I also loved how the sea and sky were complimented by the old block-work of Lee’s landmark, Mill House.
pictures made into a panoramic to fit both the sun and the beach huts together.
I love how the golden light of the sun can be seen on the white of the beach huts. All huts have ladies names and the first red one on the left is Elizabeth :-)
Potters Hill where there were great views over the whole of the village covered in the white stuff. It was a grey day, the sun never actually put in an appearance, but it is possible to make out most of Woolacombe’s wonderful landmarks.
conditions. On this occasion it was overcast until the very end of the day when the sun just dipped below the clouds and cast a beautiful golden light. The light
complemened the golden sands and the dune grass perfectly. Also in the picture is Mill Rock and the Lifesavers Hut which is setup during the summer months.
