This photo of breaking waves was taken in springtime at Porthchapel beach, near the village of Porthcurno in the county of Cornwall, UK. This lovely little beach is reached by a short walk along the clifftop from either Porthcurno or Porthgwarra followed by a scramble down the rocks.

    Wow, fabulous capture of these gorgeous, big waves! Love the colours and the action of the waves!

  • Thank you Tracy! When I saw the waves and colours I just had to get the camera out and had great fun trying to take the shot and dodge the sea at the same time! Rachel
