St Nectans Glen

Saint Nectan's Glen is an area of woodland in Trethevy near Tintagel, north Cornwall stretching for around one mile along both banks of the Trevillet River. The glen's most prominent feature is St Nectan's Kieve, a spectacular sixty foot waterfall through a hole in the rocks. This was my first trip to St Nectan’s Glen Waterfall and what a beautiful and mystical place it is. There are many myths and legends which surround this place and you can understand why, it’s like walking into film set of a King Arthur movie. It was a warm spring day with plenty of sunshine, but the blanket of leaves from the trees softened the light. The waterfall is encompassed by 60 feet sheer upright walls of emerald green rock with very little room to manoeuvre, so I had to use my widest lens, the Nikon 16-35 which was ample enough on my 800E. Thought this would be a good time to try out my new Lee landscape polariser and wow it really does pop the colours. This gave me an exposure time of about 2 seconds – perfect waterfalls. After a few hours of trying to find the best angle to shoot from and running backwards and forwards to clean my lens from the relentless oncoming spray, I felt the foreground of the shot was lacking interest. Thankfully someone had kindly constructed a stack of stones just in front of the waterfall – you will see these spiritual creations scattered all around St Nectan’s Glen. So after hours of perseverance and sure determination (and many lens cloths later, next time I’m taking a clear plastic bag for cover) I came away with this shot, one of my last shots of the day.
