Season: winter

Bright sunshine was the order of the day for this winter re-visit.  A low tide and the stunning scenery here had combined to attract extra visitors down to the sea.  Recent storms had left their mark on the higher reaches, but by the water the Atlantic breakers rolled benignly in.  The ever-changing nature of the beach never fails to impress.  Those of us lucky enough to be here today saw Mawgan Porth in all its majesty.

Season: autumn

It was a glorious afternoon at Mawgan Porth beach, near Newquay Airport in North Cornwall.  The tide was out, leaving a vast space of beach for people to enjoy.  The sun is lower now and throws a different light on the sea, silver but slightly diffused.  A gentle onshore breeze moderated the hot sun and added to the first wistful flicker of autumn in people’s faces.

Season: spring

The sun was shining, at low tide over Mawgan Porth beach on Cornwall’s North Coast.  The weekend had brought horse riders, locals, visitors and the Bristol Surf Club to the beach.  The Surf Club were doing a beach clean, part of their weekend down in Cornwall.  This was manonabeach’s first sight of a seasonal beach tent for this year.
