 A cloudy morning as Jim took the dogs up the hill and I went off to Helston
 Heard a strange tapping noise and spotted the men working on the Church wall - with the lovely Belladonna Lillies still flowering alongside them
The afternoon walkies and it was still grey - with pink/orange around the edges

Bright sky behind Newlyn

 The colours changing on Maen-dhu Point - Look closely and you can see that right on the top was a Kestrel

 Looking a bit puffed out !
Turned around as we walked back towards the car park
We noticed that Chris Howarth - The Man with a Rake, had been working down on the beach
We walked onto one of the out of use fields and peeked over the cliff !
 This one is a maze - sadly the tide was coming in and they would soon be gone !
Just loved the effect of the bright streak towards the horizon
 Looking over to Mousehole
 Fiery cauldron behind the hills
 The sun finding the gap for a few minutes


  1. Sue, I am curious about the rake art. Does the artist get any compensation for his work, and besides the fleeting beauty of it, who gets to see it? I was wondering if he takes aerial pictures of his work with a drone, or just from the cliffs, and whether he is compiling the images for a book? All questions you may not be able to answer, but occurred to me.
    Those Belladonna lilies really show up from a distance, don't they? I showed some to my husband this last trip and immediately he said, "How do they photosynthesize?" I guess they are bulbs so do not need leaves, but you can see we two Newmans have enquiring minds!

  2. I think that Chris just enjoys watching people admiring and enjoying his work. I think he'd love a drone to get some aerial shots - but the cliffs aften help to get photos from above ! Not sure if he does anything else to earn money - certainly isn't paid for his "sand-scapes"
    The Belladonna do grow leaves in the Spring which then die down before the flower spikes appear - so I assume that they could photosynthasise during that stage - they certainly seem to do well alongside the Church wall.
