ABC Wednesday - C - Camel Estuary - Cornwall - England



I was in Cornwall for Christmas so it seemed an appropriate choice for the letter C. However as I am also publishing posts about Cornwall on my Travel Tales blog I decided to be more specific and selected some views of the Camel Estuary for ABC Wednesday

The tide was out and there was dredging work going on.

  1. Dredging is such a big job! I think it's amazing the equipment doesn't sink into the sand.

Welcome to my photography blog, where I share the world as seen through my lens. All commenter's will receive a visit back from me but no longer individual replies unless you have a question, which I will respond to here. Your praise and kind words are always appreciated but to keep saying thankyou to you all individually, in an original way is not easy. So I am saying it here instead, a massive thankyou from my heart for all the wonderful support, your comments are a great encouragement to me.
