During my week in Cornwall (to get married!) I was aiming to get some gorgeous coastal photos. On my actual wedding day I woke up really early so went for a walk along the beach at Porthtowan, Cornwall.

I was spoilt for choice with amazing colours from the sky reflecting on the incoming tide. I had the beach to myself until I spotted this surfer running down to catch the waves. He was running quite quickly so I tried to intercept his path so I could get a better shot. It turns out he can run faster than me on wet sand.

I felt this image showed how vast the beach is with the tide out but also how quiet and peaceful it can be at that time of day.
