Photo101: Edge & Alignment.

Assignment for today: “Show us an edge – a straight line, a narrow ridge, a precipice.”

Over breakfast I pondered what approach this task needed, this could be another tricky one!

Fortunately the day was shaping up well, with lots of sunshine and even better I was planning to spend most of it on my beloved North Cornwall Coast. An idea began to form in my mind, but as so often happens something else came along and it just sort of seemed better.

So here is my interpretation of edge and alignment.

Barras Nose, where Cornwall meets the Atlantic Ocean.

Barras Nose, where Cornwall meets the Atlantic Ocean.


There’s quite a lot going on in the picture and more than one “Edge.”

Firstly there’s the edge where the land meets the sea; it’s the edge of the ocean and also the edge of the land. Next we have the edge of the cliff and finally the horizon where the sea meets the sky, or in the old times it was the edge of the world!

As you can see, it was really tough spending time in such a spot. . . only joking, it was wonderful!

I hope you like the photograph and as ever I’d love to hear from you with your thoughts.

Catch you soon.

  1. I don’t know how you manage to do these IMPOSSIBLE assignments when you live in such a non-photogenic place!!! It must be such a tough decision each day to decide what to photograph…… *rolls eyes*
    OJ Dookes, it’s gorgeous! I hope you didn’t go too near the edge though…. be careful (said yer grannie) 😉
