Cornwall is one of the most photogenic counties in the UK; a landscape photographer’s heaven, where you can capture its breathtaking scenery, with its wild, rugged, windswept, romantic, and stunning landscapes in West Cornwall. This ancient land full of history and nature has so much to offer photographers. The Lizard Peninsula, the most southerly point in the UK, boasts countryside least affected by the passing of years. Its population is mainly concentrated around the fishing villages. Kynance Cove on the Lizard is famous for its white sand, turquoise sea, and rock stacks, and lots of good photo opportunities

 

Cornwall or Penwith as it is also known, where we will visit Kynance Cove, Lizard Point, St Micheals Mount, Lands End, Porth Nanvan and the Botallack Crown Mines which is one of Cornwall’s most iconic places and is perched on the very edge of the cliff, there also other ruins of other Engine houses across the cliff tops. the Cornwall mining landscape has been given World Heritage Status, recognised by UNESCO.
