“Iconic Cornish Landscape”
An evening of Natural History, both in print and digital projection.
It’s the start of a new season!
The Oatey Cup is an internally judged competition, three prints per-member which shows your favourite shots taken over the summer break.
It’s also hand-in for the Chairman’s Cup, this year the theme is “Environmental Sustainability”.
Andy has informed me that this car-park is currently closed for refurbishment so we’ll have to meet at the next one further south. This will add an extra 15 minutes or so of walking to the trip over some rougher ground so let me know if you’re still planning to attend.
On Tuesday evening we will visit Colliford Lake to see the petrified trees, I believe the water is already very low and beyond their base.
We will meet at 7:30 pm at the car park which is at the northern tip of the west “finger” of the lake, search Google Maps for “Colliford bbq rock“ for the correct location. It’s about a 10 minute walk from there and relatively flat.
On Tuesday there’s still the potential for a nice sunset, but it’s also high-tide right around then so I’ve decided against a coastal walk and instead thought we could try Sheepstor. I’ve not been up there myself before but I believe it’s a bit of a steep one to get to!
We’ll meet at 7:30pm, at the Burrator Quarry Car Park and head on from there.
On Tuesday we will be visiting Polruan for the evening, meeting at 7:30 in the car park on St. Saviour’s Hill and walking down to the village from there. Hopefully we’ll get a nice sunset over Fowey on the opposite side of the river… high tide is 7:20pm!
