[ Photo Gallery # 86 }


My photo gallery today features photographs taken several years ago along the shores of the River Camel Estuary. The CAMEL ESTUARY is included within the Cornwall Area Of Outstanding Beauty. It is a wide tidal river valley stretching inland from the open sea for five miles to the town of Wadebridge. Many small villages, creeks, beaches and inlets line its coast, and, on the west bank is the delightful town of Padstow.

  1. You always capture England’s beauty in your photographs Roland, I’m now once again a small boy admiring a window full of Pasties the size of a half a dinner plate and as a young man admiring the water flowing along the culverts in Helston before popping into the ‘Blue Anchor’ for a jar of their own ale with my father. Thank you for this post Roland.

  2. Lovely, Roland. I’m kind of envious. I’ve always thought I’d get along nicely in Great Britain. I’ve only traveled there once but would love to return.

  3. WOW! sorry for childish expression but that is how I felt when I started going through your photos.
    First I thought I picked my favourites in no 2 and 3 but the others proved to be stunning too.
    I will save them for the pleasure of looking at times.
    Thank you
