Seascapes from my Cornish Tin Mine album

Today Paula has asked us to show Seascape…so I have selected 4 images from years ago, scanned in from slides, alas not the best quality. The sunset shot was taken by my late father on Perutz film, and the slide has ‘washed out’ rather. I recall it looking rather different years ago…. And the Wheal Coates image was taken against the light somewhat. But here goes, anyway:

Apropos Botallack, you used to be able to negotiate a very narrow path to reach the furthest engine house (don’t know if that’s still possible), but I was too nervous to attempt it even then, with the sea crashing around below. But I always regretted not doing it.

If anyone knows where that first image would have been taken, I would love to know.

More seascapes here.



  1. ‘Poldark’ is returning soon. These shots reminded me of it. Nice work, Sue.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. ๐Ÿ™‚ thank you, Sue. I love them all, and who wouldn’t love Cornish coast. What photo may I use in my slideshow next week?

  4. I really enjoyed seeing these, Sue. We didn’t go to Botallack. Maybe next time. I keep seeing Cornish posts on the blogs today. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m sure that Adrian of would know where your first one was taken.

  5. beautiful part of the world. with an extra bonus of sweet memories- love that you included your late father’s photo. it is very nice.

  6. The “washed out” give the photos a very atmospheric feel. I lived in Britanny back in the 70’s–reminded me of that.

  7. A good record of the mines back then, I wonder how they’ll look in another forty years.

  8. Now you make me want to go to Cornwall…never visited…Love them all!

  9. I haven’t been to the Botallack one yet. The OH would hate it, but I might give it a go. I wonder where the Bude ones are? Might have to do a trip up there and have a look around the area.

  10. Yet more aging! I love the colours in these photos, despite my own tendency to brighten everything to Scorpionic glitter.

  11. I remember taking similar pictures in the 1970s, all gone now never to be found! Reminds me of Poldark!

  12. Beautiful slideshow, fascinating seascapes. We have a few similar places here. I imagine how they were building these sites, and what the life was like.

  13. Love the beautiful views!

  14. Full of atmosphere, Sue. I find myself liking Wheal Coates. ๐Ÿ™‚ Happy Sunday!
