Carbis Bay Beach, New Years Day

New Years morning dawned overcast but reasonably mild so dog walking on the beach was the ideal occupation. Recent high tides had washed up large quantities of seaweed but little else of interest, no sign of the missing Basking Shark tag that people have been asked to keep a look out for.
New camera for Christmas so I thought I'd try it out on the rocks around the addits (from the copper mine that ran under our house) to see how it coped with the colours, macro and focusing on wet rocks. Quite pleased with the results.
On the way back up the hill I noticed that as well as some early daffodils this camellia was in full bloom, unfortunately a heavy frost is forecast for next week so the blooms will soon be looking very sad, in our garden we still have penstemons and osteospermums in bloom and the primroses are out in the hedge.
