Another in my Cornish Beach series, this is Porthcurno Beach just next to The Minack Theatre, which you can just see embedded into the rocks on the edge of the headland. Unlike Pedn Vounder Beach (the next one along, north) access is easy and it is popular with families.

If you zoom-in (click on the photo twice) you can see the steps up to Minack...

A spontaneous photo take in 1972 at the same time as this one but from a slightly different angle and printed in high contrast to bring out the colours of warm skin, floaty hair and cool sea, and their abstract qualities.

Now back living in Plymouth where we were in 1975-6 it is great to revisit our favourite places nearby, especially Wembury Beach which still has that wonderful feeling of unspoilt Devon coastline as the area is owned (and protected from development) by The National Trust.

A storm te previous day had put more seaweed than usual on the beach but I liked the way it caught the low sunlight of the summer evening.

I found a fun snap I took of Marie when she had just put on her jumper and it caught her hair in an interesting frame around her face. I really could not stop photographing her as she looked so beautiful to me – and in quite different ways in each shot...

Fortunately she didn't mind me snapping away even when it caught her by surprise – here she had just opened her eyes to find me taking the picture... "I think I look a bit stupid" (I didn't)!

From Feb. 1973 shortly before we married.

(An older, lower quality version was posted a few years ago.)
