Woolacombe and Mortehoe

A collection of pictures from around Woolacombe and Mortehoe, this is the location where I go to take pictures the majority of the time and the area I know best.  


One of the amazing wonders about this location is that the sun sets to the left of Lundy Island when viewed from Woolacombe during the Autumn\Winter months (after Autumn equinox) and to the right during the Spring\Summer months (after the Spring equinox).  

View Towards Baggy Point From Woolacombe
Poppy Overlooking Woolacombe at Sunset
October 2015 - My dog Poppy and I love to explore the landscape around North Devon. When you reach the high points of some of the walks the views are breathtaking even for dogs. So sometimes you just have to sit and enjoy.
From this particular location you can not only see over to Baggy Point and Hartland, but also over Morte Point and to Wales in the opposite direction.

Beach Huts at Sunset - Rachel
May 2017 - The huts are on the beach between May and September. They are removed each year to protect them from the strong winds and high tides at other times
of the year. This picture was taken in late spring when the sun sets towards Morte Point. The sun cast a golden light which reflected beautifully from the white frames of the huts and from the sand. The first yellow hut was ‘Rachel’.
Golden Sunset from Woolacombe Down
July 2019 - A familiar gate to anyone that’s walked beyond Potters Hill towards Woolacombe Down and Putsborough. The gate is the entry to a fantastic walk over the Down with spectacular views over the Bay. This was a golden summer sunset looking down from the stone wall (upon which I was stood), with wildflowers, the gate, along the path towards the beach, sea, the village and Morte Point.
Fire and Water at Baggy Point
February 2019 - During the winter months from Woolacombe, the sun sets over Baggy Point. This was the end of a breezy day which made the tails on the waves. As the sun set behind the waves, the combination of water and fire really caught the eye. The orange of the sun, sky and reflections combined with the blue of the water make a beautiful image. The four birds dotted around were an added bonus!
Good Morning from Barricane Beach-2
June 2018 - Pictured on a glorious morning, a popular destination for many unique reasons. The most notable are the unusually Shelly makup of the beach where others around are all sand and the shelter it offers especially on a windy day. Of course most noteworthy for many is the Sri Lankan curry that is provided from the hut, where you can also see the menu here to choose your next order!

Golden Sunset under Cloudy Sky at Woolac
Red Barn Sunset - Woolacombe
December 2019 - Taken during Christmas week when the sun is pretty much furthest around and sets over Baggy Point. I particuarly loved how the light from the sun in the
distance casts itself onto the Red Barn sign and the door. The scene and the Open sign is inviting you in for a drink and some fun! So, when you look at this picture, I’d like you to imagine walking in for your favourite drink to enjoy this view.

Woolacombe from Mill Rock
April 2019 - Mill Rock on Woolacombe beach is a popular spot to spend some time and can provide a bit of shelter from the sun or wind. On this day, the rocks were lit up beautifully by the sun. I love patterns in photography, if you look closely, you will see wavy wind patterns on the dry sand in the foreground. All is complemented by the beautiful blue sky on this wonderful spring day.
Golden Sunset at Woolacombe with Fence
Woolacombe Morning from Baggy Point
April 2019.- This picture was taken from Baggy Point fairly early in the morning. I was there to take pictures of the parkrun where, from here, the runners looked like ants making their way along the beach. Whilst there, this image caught my eye with my zoom lens. I loved the patterns of the waves on the sea, the big beach being prepared by the Parkin Estates tractor and the village in the morning sunlight.
