Location County Country
Trebarwith Strand Cornwall England

DescriptionAn extremely picturesque bay at the bottom of a deep valley with the photogenic Gull Rock around 600 metres offshore.
What to ShootShoot Gull Rock in the distance with beautiful textured rocks and rock pools in the foreground.
What to TakeA fairly wide angle lens will be useful here as well as ND filters for controlling contrast.
ParkingThe entire village area is restricted for parking in the Summer months (May onwards), so you will need to park at one of the carparks several hundred metres up the hill.
Best TimesBeing fairly North-facing, sunset is generally good but there are opportunities for all manner of shots at any time. Good shots can be had at both low and high tide as well - watch the tide though as it comes in very fast on the shallow beach.
