Rainbows Over Portreath

Not the busy port it was when mining was in its heyday in Cornwall, Portreath on the north coast is still a magnet for surfers and photographers, especially when a storm is forecast. On this particular day in March 2019 I went down to the beach as the tide was coming in with a near gale force wind behind it and was overjoyed to be greeted by a double rainbow over the Monkey House and Pepper Pot on Lighthouse Hill.

Incoming Tide At Portreath

It was nearly high tide in Portreath on the north coast of Cornwall and the light was beautiful as the sun started to go down behind Battery Hill, illuminating the Monkey House and Pepper Pot in a soft golden glow.

Terri Waters | The Monkey Hut Portreath

The Monkey Hut Portreath

Not the busy port it was when mining was in its heyday in Cornwall, Portreath on the north coast is still a magnet for surfers and photographers, especially when a storm is forecast and I couldn’t resist stopping by with my camera at high tide in March 2019. As usual the new Monkey Hut, as it is known by the locals, was getting a battering. The old one was washed away in the storms of 2012 and this replica was built to replace it. The shelter dates back to 1824 during the days when Portreath was a busy port, shipping coal in and copper out. The harbour was important but the entrance was very treacherous. The Monkey House was used for shelter by the harbour pilots who would wave flags or lanterns to guide ships into harbour, or warn away if conditions were too dangerous.
Terri Waters | Out Walking In The Snow

Out Walking In The Snow

A couple walk their dogs in the snow on their way towards Restronguet Hill at Mylor Bridge in Cornwall. Snow is unlikely in Cornwall but at the end of February 2018 we got a few days of snowfall that settled making a whole new fresh white landscape.
