This rock arch is called ‘Song of the sea’ or Zawn Pyg
in Cornish. It’s at a secluded beach called Nanjizal,
just to the East of Land’s End. Access is by foot only,
via the South West Coast path or footpaths over fields.
It’s a feature of one of my children and my favourite
walks.
I’ve wanted to shoot at this beach in winter for
several years. This is when the sun sets in the middle of
the bay. Patience paid off and eventually I got
conditions that I’d waited for, sunset coinciding with
low tide and no heavy cloud bank out to sea. This
was 5 years after my initial idea for the shot!
Keeping a watchful eye on the sun, I made a series of
other images on other parts of the beach. When the
sun was sufficiently low, I headed over to the left side
of the beach to shoot this. It soon became apparent
that it was best to exclude the sky above the arch.
If you look in the bottom right hand corner, the
silhouette of the reflected rock against the skyline
seems to form the profile of a face. The singer
perhaps?
