The perils of Landscape photography

So, hopefully by now, you’re all aware we’re in the middle of re-branding our photographic range of bars. Sounds great….right :/

Unfortunately since we took the decision to give the old girl a facelift, the weather hasn’t exactly been kind to us, and we’ve had about 3 days of sunshine. Also Cornwall being Cornwall, you’re never exactly sure that the weather you have in one place is going to be the same in the place you want to go to shoot some photos.

The first location on the hit list is West Cornwall. As it’s the furthest point away from us it logically seems right that it’s the first one we can get in the bag, numerous locations in a small area will adorn some of our favourite flavours really soon…..But it poses a number of problems, primarily travel time and the unpredictable weather. A day can easily be wasted in just travelling to and from locations only to find that the fog, clouds, rain etc. have rolled in. We’ve tried a countless occasions to get certain shots over the years for bar wrappers to no avail. If you want a picture of Bedruthan Steps in any season, we’re your guys as it’s only a mile away….but that iconic pic of Botallack, the Mount, Porth Nanven, Choughs on the Lizard…the list goes on. That my friends takes time, and a whole bucket of LUCK!.

So we’re about 2 months away from launching the new range and we’ve got about 20% of the images needed. Fear not, it will be completed in time….Cornwall, we have total faith in you to deliver the needed weather at the right time.

Here’s a sneek peak into some of the new images….we hope you like them.

Our day at the Cornish Pirates

On the last day of a miserable January, we were invited to the Cornish Pirates special Ladies Day in support of The Mermaid Centre, based at the Royal Cornwall Hospital, Treliske.

We were very happy to support such a worthy cause, and contributed a special Rugby ball styled giant chocolate egg for the raffle, as well as some exclusive themed chocolate bars, modelled on the special home shirt the Pirates would wear for the game.

The game was great fun and we enjoyed getting involved with the partisan home support.

 

Have your say on our new Photo bars

We’re hard at work refreshing the look of our dear old photo bars. We need your help!

Recently we asked for suggestions on locations in Cornwall that we should photograph. We had some crackers, but still need more. Loads of you suggested bays, coves and beaches, some we knew, some we didn’t….but we still need some that are a bit more quirky. Do you know somewhere that there’s a great stack of lobster pots you think would look amazing….do gig clubs row past your front window? Any lovely woodlands that have a bloom of wild flowers?

Basically anything and everything to do with the beauty of Cornwall, we want to know. Once the weather clears up a bit we’ll be heading out again to continue this project.

If you could also vote in our poll as to which 5 suggestions that have already been received you’re keen on seeing, that will also help us out loads. If you’ve got a new one please add it.

Hope you like the sneak peak of the new look too….let us know what you think 🙂

Cheers n’ gone….KC x
