WPC: Frames from Cornwall

The Weekly Photo Challenge this week is ‘Frame’.

Here are a few photos from our visit to beautiful Cornwall in which the sea and sky are framed by openings or windows in historic buildings.

The first is looking through to the sea,  from the inside of the dramatic ruins of Wheal Coates tin mine which stands above Chapel Porth beach.

Another highlight of our Cornwall trip was a visit to St. Michael’s Mount, a small tidal island just off the coast of Marazion. The castle which dates from the 14th century, stands high on The Mount and has stunning views across Mounts Bay.

Every window has a sea view, and I can imagine living here and every day looking out of the many windows, some quite narrow,

others a bit wider, to see the sea way down below.

I think this would have been my favourite; a window-seat where I could sit on a nice soft cushion and listen to the waves crashing on the rocks, whilst reading a good book,

or maybe this one, as the sun moved round.

The castle hasn’t always been so peaceful, and here is the view from the battlements past one of the many cannons which during the Napoleonic Wars, drove a French frigate to its capture on Marazion beach.
