In pictures: Perranporth beach in Cornwall at sunset
Cornwall might have been beautiful last week, but it wasn’t very kind to us on the weather front. After grey skies and drizzle for days, when the sun finally appeared late one afternoon we headed straight down to the beach with our cameras. Nearby Perranporth beach was full of people taking advantage of the sunshine for a quick evening walk or surf. The wide sandy beach turned golden in the afternoon light before the sun started to dip down behind Chapel Rock. And then it was gone – the sun disappeared just as quickly as it arrived and within a hour the sunset light had faded back into rain clouds.
