Cornish Sunset and Sunrise

Posted on April 16th, 2016

A Cornish Sunset or Sunrise is so Calming 

Here on the farm we have had another beautiful if chilly week. Rain has fallen largely overnight leaving beautiful days for our holiday guests to enjoy. Waking up in the morning to sunshine peeping through the curtains is so motivating. Finally those sleepy winter mornings of darkness are past and being up in time to check the animals and do the school run is no longer a chore. With baby lambs needing early and late feeds I have found myself out with a camera or phone either end of the day and spoiled for choice for a beautiful Cornish sunset or sunrise to capture. Frosty morning dew on the grass or yellowing night light from the sinking sun, all install a sense of calm and peace and make me thankful of our beautiful countryside lifestyle.

By the end of the day I have to walk to the boundary of Coombe Mill and up the lane to capture the beautiful Cornish sunset. It’s pleasure to chase the sun and capture skies like this.

I go to bed with the promise of a Cornish sunrise from the deep red skies. 


To the Farm

My morning walk to the farm takes me over the river Camel. It is breathtaking at any time of day but early morning is quite magical. I love the colours and glistening water in this photo.


It is this same stretch of river that prompted Felix to write his English GCSE assignment.

Expectant Goats

We have had a wonderful lambing season this year but sadly the same cannot be said for the goats. I have one last hope with “Bully” one of the older lady goats. I took this photo as the sun rose over their field before checking for any signs of kids born overnight. Alas no kids again this week.


In the Shade

You can still see a chilly bluish tinge on the daffodils here where the morning sun hasn’t quite reached round.



I hope you find time to watch the sun rise or set this week.
