The weather was lovely today so we decided to spend the day at Polperro.

We started at Fowey at got the ferry over to Bodinnick then onto Polperro. On the way back we stopped in Polruan. There are some amazing views from the top car park here, but I wouldn't recommend trying to get there in a van much bigger than ours.

I haven't done much editing on any of these yet which is why the top 2 and bottom shot are a little magenta.

Hope you like them,
David

It's a lovely place :)

Luckily for me it's only 10 miles up the road from where I now live so easy to visit. Best thing I ever did, moving down to Cornwall.

:smiley: Have had house on the market for a year now and grand plan is to move down to Devon or Cornwall. Just got back from a trip down to Looe, stayed on a site near Herodsfoot, bootiful :smiley: your pictures were great reminders of our stay. Very frustrating waiting for someone to buy our house :frowny: It's a converted chapel and like marmite people either love it or they dont ::bigsmile: We spend more time in our motorhome than at home now we're both retired so need a lock up and leave on the mainland, trouble is it seems everyone else our age has the same idea!! Patience is a virtue .... Everything comes to those who wait ..... What will be will be ..... :worried:

I love Cornwall and have spent countless holidays there since I were a child.. but don't think I would like to move there.. too many tourists in the summer :LOL:
.. how do you find the 'locals' .. have they accepted you into the community ?

like many places including the Western Isles of Scotland.. you get a great welcome as a tourist, but it's not always easy to move there and be accepted into the community.....even here in rural Suffolk we find there is some dislike of 'outsiders' moving in..

Lovely photos, my wife Chris is Cornish, comes from Falmouth so we spend a lot of time touring around that beautiful county.

Which camera did you take the photos with?

The locals in Cornwall are great. Most places here it's a pretty even split between natives and incomers and besides, we all hate tourists just as much ;)

Joking aside, it's only 6 weeks of the year that the roads are awful. Small price to pay for the money it brings to the area.

I now use a Canon EOS M - fantastic little camera for landscapes (but to slow for say fast wildlife). I only bought it as a stop gap last year while saving for a Canon 5d III. It was only £200 from Argos including a 18-55 lens. I found I really like the system so I've stuck with it and bought the other available lenses.

I have the new version (M3) on pre-order and should be here in a few weeks (y)

Nice camera the 5D, I have the 7D didn`t think I would need the full frame capability.
Just bought a Sigma 70-200mm 2.8 lens, half the price of the canon equivalent well pleased with it, great for a day at the zoo.

Nice little compact the Eos M thinking of getting one myself to replace my ageing pocket rocket Lumix.

newbie from caravan - 5yrs now
Nice pics. Only problem it makes me want to give up work to travel more.
Not been to Polperro for years and remember having crab butties on the headland overlooking the harbour as the fishing boats came in and before it got busy - had left by 10 a.m

It was the 7d I had before my M - great camera.

I was using mainly a Canon 10-22 and the Tamron 24-70 VC on it and was very surprised when I was getting better results (for what I photograph) with the M and it's native lenses..

If you want a compact solution to replace your Lumix, the M with maybe the 22mm prime (silly cheap and ridiculously good) is a great "carry in the pocket" solution for a Canon DSLR user, as you can get the adapter and use all your big lenses.
