I finally decided to drag my arse out and take some photos since i had a mate arriving from near London the day after. After much deliberation on where to go i decided to try Hayle Estaury. The conditions weren't the best and my cable release decided to pack up soon after starting - cheap Chinese crap. Still i got a decent shot in the end and didn't get cut off by the tide this time.
Having attained a decent photo the night before i was ready with renewed excitement to leave home at 0430 to get a Porthcurno sunrise. I've done plenty of sunsets in this area but never sunrises so it was a bit of a lash up trying to find out where the sun was going to appear from. Thanks to bad traffic (yes i know it was 0430 but still) i didnt need to look too hard after arriving on location as it was already rising fast.
A quick bite at the awesome eatery that is McDonalds and it was off to Trebah Gardens. I'd not been there for a while and was looking forward to seeing how it had changed......it hadn't!
The weather started to get wet and we decided to make a trip to the Eden Project in St Austell. An hours drive and £22 each lighter (plants are expensive apparently) and i was ready to photograph some foliage and believe me there is a lot of it in those biomes. First snag, misting lens, it's hot as hell in there and i was sweating like a rapist in a nursery. After a good dose of man the fuck up i began.....avoiding the fat tourists, push chairs, buggies and general nob heads. This was starting to be the shittest idea since i confirmed that the kettle was hot by putting my hand on it!
Hmmmm, yes very interesting. Best thing about that trip? The overpriced icecream!
