Cornish seas: changing colours, more photos

I half feel like doing a painting of this - and half think that the photo already says it all. It's one of my favourites for its simplicity.

Cape Cornwall is the hill on the headland and off to the right on the horizon the rocks called The Brisons. Above in blue skied sunny mood and below with beautiful swirling clouds and steely blue-greys. The rocks here and at Porthcurno round past Lands End to the right are quite pale unless they are covered in seaweed but at Priests Cove (see lower down) at Cape Cornwall are very very dark.

Isn't it lovely the way the light changes and the sea becomes pearly and opalescent or steely or vividly blue?
Not to mention the changes in the surf - in all of these the sea is calm and tranquil with little surf but just look at the earlier post of the breakers crashing over the harbour wall to see how quickly this can change too :>)
