My photos of Cornwall section has been a little neglected in recent months, but I am making up for that now and will be posting a new addition to the series every Wednesday for the forseeable future, this time featuring other bloggers. The first blogger to feature in Photos of Cornwall this month is one of my favourites Donna, who writes What the Redhead said
Constantine Bay near Padstow
What brought you to Cornwall – if you don’t live here?: I have a very close friend that grew up in Cornwall on her parents’ farm and we were lucky enough to stay on her parents farm when I was heavily pregnant with my first child and during that time I really fell in love with Cornwall. We have holidayed there as much as possible since – averaging once a year.
Where is your favourite place in Cornwall?: That’s a toughie. Lands End is absolutely beautiful. It’s a place I have to visit each time we go to Cornwall and it’s a place I will never tire of spending time at. The views are incredible, the little shops are cute and the history is amazing. But the feeling you get at Lands End is like nothing else – with the sun shining, the waves crashing against the rocks and the wind blowing as you look out to sea it really does feel like you’re at the end of the earth. It’s an amazing place.

What camera/mobile phone do you usually use for your photos?: I use an entry-level Canon 1100D with either the kit lens or 50mm lens depending on how I’m feeling. I’ve had the camera for a few years now and love it although I am still learning how to truly use it!
If you could take a photograph of anyone or anywhere in the world, where or who would you choose?: I am longing to visit New York at Christmas so photos of that – a wintery Central Park, the Statue of Liberty or Grand Central Station. I want to see it all!
Describe Cornwall in a maximum of three words: Beautiful, breathtaking and timeless.
Pasty or Cream tea?: Cream tea, every single time!
Afternoon Tea at Woods Cafe – Cardinham Woods
If you could be anywhere in the World right now doing anything, what would you be doing and where?: Right now I’m actually sitting in my PJs, on the sofa, watching a movie with the children under a blanket. To be honest, its cliche but there is nowhere I’d rather be. We have quite a lot of adventures planned this year and as much as I am looking forward to them sometimes there really is no place like home – especially when surrounded by your family.
Please tell me a random fact about you?: I did a Sky Dive when I was 19. It was for The Big Issue and I raised £500 which was then doubled to £1000 by my work and then I did a tandem sky dive. It was an incredible experience, and something I will remember forever but something that I definitely wouldn’t do again.
Thank you Donna, I love your photos – even if the last one has made me very hungry!
