Sandymouth, Cornwall, England. The beach at Sandymouth is home to some fascinating geological formations. Here the setting sun highlights the red in the rock while a long exposure under a clear sky resulted in the beach pebbles picking up a soft blue hue.

Field of Light was an installation at the Eden Project in Cornwall, England by lighting designer Bruce Munro, which recently closed in March. The installation was comprised of 6,000 acrylic stems with fibre optic cables that represent light flowers or seeds that "blossom" at night.

This door is probably the most photographed in St Ives, Cornwall, and even has its own Flickr group. The 200 year old door belongs to St Ives Bakery and has been listed by its owners, who were at one time made an offer to put it in the Tate gallery, but as the owner said where would I get another 200 year old door. http://www.flickr.com/photos/delboyalbums/6260514881/

Camelot: discovering the legend of King Arthur around Britain

King Arthur's Stone, Slaughter Bridge, Tintagel and Camelford, Cornwall, England (c.5 A.D.) The village of Slaughter Bridge is thought to be the location of Camlann, the site of Arthur's final battle, according to Geoffrey of Monmouth.

St Guidel’s Holy Well, Menacuddle, near St Austell: This is a truly magical site, sitting as it does at the foot of a grove of ancient trees and rhododendron bushes, beside a waterfall and river which runs white with the powder from the china clay industry which once so dominated this area.

St. Michael's Mount near Penzance occupies a granite outcrop which rises dramatically from Mount's Bay and is England's most scenic coastal attraction, a medieval castle with sub tropical hanging gardens and a church perched on top of a rocky island, cut off from the mainland at high tide.

St. Ives in Cornwall, England this is pretty close to where we lived in Padstow, Cornwall - just don't try to find a carpark anywhere!
