I've just realised it's the autumn equinox today but much as I am looking forward to the beautiful colours of autumn, in this post I'm taking one last look back to Summer. Specifically to an evening I spent at Cornborough Range on the North Devon coast.
Cornborough Range is an expanse of rock only revealed at low tide and contains a wealth of coastal wildlife. It's one of the few places where you can access the beach from the cliffs that run along this stretch of the South West Coast Path but it is often deserted, even in the height of the British summer holidays. No doubt the mile or so walk from the nearest car park plays a part!
It's a shame that most visitors miss this spot but it does mean I can enjoy the beach all to myself with only the occasional walker peering over the cliff. Perfect.
You really don't have to walk too far to find compositions which are literally at your feet almost wherever you walk. I'm always surprised that I've seen so few photographs taken from Cornborough Range. Most seem to be taken from the cliffs. I don't ponder this for long though and I am soon at work making the most of the light.
I hung around for a while after sunset in case anything interesting happened but, as I suspected, the upper atmosphere was relatively clear that day and there was to be no interesting dusk display. Time to return to civilisation.
