Porth Nanven Beach

One of the most westerly beaches in England, Porth Nanven near Cape Cornwall is battered by Atlantic waves, which pile up huge rounded boulders. A 30-second exposure belies the typically stormy conditions and gives an impression of tranquillity. Photographed on the day that neap low tide coincided with sunset, waves swirling round the foreground boulders have been transformed into what looks like mist.
