Photographer's Note

This tower is called the Daymark and marks the entrance to the river Camel and the port of Padstow. I don't know if it was actually ever used to signal boats. On the way up the river, boats had to negotiate the Doom Bar, so named because it was the death of many a sailing ship. Just below the beacon, the rock was quarried out which enabled sailing ships to be winched around the headland if the wind was in the wrong direction. The island in the distance is Gulland and the small headland is Trevose.

I wanted to catch the evening light rather than the sunset. I had to correct the obvious 'barrelling' of the tower which resulted in a crop.
