A view at low tide across Porth Nanven towards Cape Cornwall from the high overlook nicknamed ‘The Castle’.  If conditions are right and the air is clear during the winter months, one gets a sense of immense distances from the many high viewpoints along the cliff tops. Clouds moving overhead create patchworks of light and shadow that creep over the horizon and parade across the ocean.
