    Misty Morning In Cornwall - Bandwidth Warning

    My son and I did a walk about this morning in the mist - kind of in between overcast and light rain. We're in a new village for us. It's an old mining and farming village. You can still see remnants of the old tin and arsenic mines. The shafts are sealed up, but still dangerous.

    This is a bandwidth burner post so be warned. There are a few pics I like in here and some that are just passable, but I wanted to show the area. There's tons more to photograph, including a beautiful forest with the River Tamar winding through. I'll shoot that when it's sunnier out.

    All pics were shot with a now aging Canon 6mp 300D and 50mm f1.4 lens. With the crop factor, the lens is effectively 80mm.

    Here we go. The main road into the village



    Looking into the main part of the village (did I say it was small )



    We had to stop at the swings off the trail behind our house



    There's a bench for us old farts



    Now off through the spooky forest as Josh calls it



    And we come to a bit of an old arsenic mine.



    Up the sand hill above the mine we go. There are still chunks of arsenic in the sand.



    He made it! No, that's not a chunk of arsenic he's holding



    Some views through the mist. Other old mine buildings are visible in the first.







    Back down the hill to another trail and onto this pretty lane that runs by and old mill house. Guess I don't need to keep saying old as everything around here is old.



    This little stream



    Runs into this



    Which flows under the village bridge





    And heads out of the village becoming the wide River Tamar not too far way



    And that's about it for today. We had a nice walk and Josh got a chocolate bar at the little post office shop for being good. Have a great w/e all.
    Cheers,
    Bruce

    Great pictures Bruce. Makes me miss home and the British countryside. I was born and raised in Hampshire which has some great landscapes and forests, and in which I spent way too much time in as a kid.

    Appreciate you sharing them and I hope you and your family continue to enjoy the beautiful little (old) town.

    Cheers!

    Great insight into the area you live Bruce with your usual high standard photo's. Bet you can't wait for the Summer. Hope your village has a pub.

    LMAO You're not too far from correct Klaus! Our mobiles don't work in the village because it's too low. The broadband is faster than in the last village we lived in, though. That was a pleasant surprise!

    My wife went to use the phone box while we were moving in and before our land line was hooked up. She had to clear the spider webs from the door to get in.

    Thanks Klaus for your kind comments,
    Bruce

    Great photos taken in a lovely area. Reminds me of not only my time in the U.K. but also Ireland. I immediately thought of some of the shots from the TV show, "All Creatures Great And Small" . A different era but not too much has changed visually.

    This world is full of beauty, both natural and man made. You're lucky to be raising a family there. Appreciate it, but honestly, it looks as if you already do ...Tom
