My digital painting of the pretty village of St. Mawes, looking out over the River Fal towards Falmouth. This old fishing port boasts steep and narrow streets rising from the harbour. The best way to get here is by ferry from Falmouth, a short 20 minute trip and you arrive in the quaint harbour of St. Mawes.

This image  is made from 3 different exposures, transformed using the Photomatix HDR application then finally post-processed with Photoshop CS5. It was taken on 7th July 2011 with a Nikon D90 and Nikon VR 18-200mm zoom lens at a focal length of 18mm.

The image is 4189 x 2784px in size, at a resolution of 300dpi.

Much of the dramatic Cornish coastline around St. Mawes was used as the setting for the popular television series Poldark. It is still very much a sea-faring community, with boats and yachts continually at anchor in the harbour and beyond. The sheltered location provides a safe anchorage with easy access to the coast, the river and to Carrick Roads, a waterway created after the Ice Age when an ancient valley flooded when melted caused the sea level to rise dramatically. This created the world’s third largest natural harbour and a navigable route from Falmouth to Truro.
